Hello folks I have been searching the archives here at cowboard searching for the final answers I need to get my 1931 regular to breath again after no telling how many years. I have never taken on a full off restoration of anything in my life. My mom and step dad got started a few years back restoring tractors when my step dad wanted to get a farmall cub in memory of his father and there it began. They have since collected and restored ever letter series tractor except a F-12, F-30, and M . When they bought the regular last year and it was delivered from Iowa I was drawn to it when I seen it. Full steels all the way around and the nostalgia of knowing THIS replaced mules. I had to get it going again. Well long story short a lot of research a bunch of " here goes nothing" moments that worked out. I am in the final throws. Filled with water, oil full, gear oil full in tranny and finals, fuel in the tank and a carb that leaks like a siff. So here is my question with pics turning the petcock on the tank it filled the carb and it has a hole in the body at te bottom of the R style carb beside the idle air flow set screw on bottom that pours fuel out. Is it a flaw or meant to be there?
Image. My phone is not allowin me to load link to album but this picture is of the carb and hole on it. I think u can look at album if u go to the pic. Thanks for any help. I have been on another board and not alot of them have had dealings with an R carb. I would great appreciate any help

I'm not much of a Regular expert - and most of the ones who ARE - are at Red Power Roundup. They check in at night, so hang in there, someone will get back to you!

If I had to guess, the hole is SUPPOSED to be there, and your float is stuck.

Rocky post this on the main forum, this ones for meet and greet. More folks will see it.
Regulars have a cork float notorious for becoming fuel soaked and falling apart. You need a new float at least and probably a needle and seat and a major cleaning. Do not plug the overflow hole or all that gas goes strait into the engine
