Question about Garden

1 Answer


When I start my tractor up it spits and spudders, and sometimes stalls, after running about 5 minutes it runs good. Last year I redid the head and it ran like new. I have new spark plugs and wires on it. I had the distributor cap checked and it was ok. I am leaning toward a carburetor problem. I need some more input before I go down that road.

Check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes.

carb is probably gummed up from the old gasoline. try squirting some gas into the carb where the air goes in to start it. probably won't keep running but sometimes it can shake something loose like a stuck FlOAT VALVE.

1942 farmall tractor stalls after 10 - 15 minutes of bushhogging.

Hello, W/D here.

It might have to do with your temp or it could be a fuel issue. I had a model "B" (1947) and it sometimes pulled a slight vacuum on the tank, starving it for fuel, and it took about that long. If you have the glass sediment bowel on yours, you should be able to see evidence of this if it is happening, or if you have a vent in your filler cap, it might be plugged. I don't know how a model H tank is vented, but I'm sure that you do.
As to it being temp related; it could be. You can remove and test your thermostat by immersing it in hot boiling water and seeing if it opens. It probably has it's temperature rating printed on the thermostat. If you believe that this is the issue, a lower opening thermostat can be installed to see if this corrects the problem
Good luck, and best regards, --W/D--
