  • Lincoln Classic III Carburetor

    I have a Classic 3 with the Continental TM27 gas engine and it needs carb work. It has old gas in it and it only runs with the choke on. Can anyone provide a link to a service manual for carb removal and disassembly?

      Well I got it all cleaned up, inside and out. But now I'm thinking the electronic actuator may be toast. Is there a way to test it? Cruizer???

        You mean the solinoid?

        Really that sea foam stuff clears the carb out without taking it all apart. No muss, no fuss

          I don't think its a solenoid. It threads into the float bowl and appears to be an electro-magnet. I tested it and it is definitely faulty. Maybe I have an odd-ball engine/carb?

            Are you talking about the GM engine or the continental. Big difference

              Continental, with Zenith carb.

                Its merely a fuel shut down. It should click when 12 Vdc is applied to it, ie plunger gets sucked in, and shuts the fuel off when 12Vdc is removed.

                  Just what I suspected. I gave it 12volts, and nothing happened. Guess I will just get a plug for that open hole in the float bowl. Engine runs great when I remove the solenoid and plug the hole with my finger.

                  Seems near impossible to find a new replacement solenoid...
