Question 82 liquifire

I just bought a 1982 John Deere Liquifire 440 L/C and one of the main jets has broken off one of the carbs I wnated to know if any knows where I can get one or maybe a newer snowmobile I can get the carbs from.

doubt a john deere dealer is going to be able to help you much, but a local snowmobile shop can get it out for you. is it the main jet?? if so, I can help you get that out,,, but if you broke the idle jet, not much I can do personally to help.

I expect it was an idle jet as well ..main jets are screwed into the float bowl I believe ....Because the orings get bad between the stand pipe and the bowl and pull extra fuel up and flood out.
..Probably can install complete carbs of same size and jetting but will need to do as pairs..Probably just find a dead deere for parts.
The outer air screws should be 1.1/2 turns out and might need to be glued to stop turning,,,,do not use air screws at any time to adj idle speed ...
There is also a power jet in the bowl ..
Good luck
