Question about Farmall Cub Tractor Radiator

2 Answers

Farmall Cub 1955, runs fine for about 20- minutes

After 20 minutes acts like running out of fuel. Someone said sounds like the coil is bad. Replaced the coil and the problem is still there. I have checked all the wires and they seem to be OK. I checked the distributor cap and that looks fine also.

I let the tractor sit for about a minute and I can start the tractor which runs for about 4 minutes than has the same problem of acting like running out of fuel.

I have pulled the bowl off and checked the screen. The fuel line is clear.

Any ideas?

Since you have replaced coil, plugs, and wires, Now it is time to check the fuel filter. Or tank screen.
If it is running with no hesitations or misfires, it is probably starving for fuel. Due to bad pump or filter.

Show me how to wire farmall cub tractor when converting from 6 volt to 12 volt. It's a 1951 farmall cub

Replace the coil with a 12volt coil. Replace the generator with an alternator. Replace any light bulbs with 12volt. Fit the new 12volt battery in with the negative terminal to chassis! and there you have it.

Have 2155 cub cadet when it gets hot spudders then dies wouldn't start until cools acts like it not getting gas what could be the problemn?

To be quite honest it sounds more like a fire issue than fuel. More times than not when a coil starts going bad the hotter it gets the weaker it gets and sometimes stops firing at all until cooling down, occasionally a plug will do this aswell, but I think your coil is going out.

I have a 2007 model 2544 cub cadet with a 22 hp kohler was working fine,now it is acting up,starts fine but will quit after using it for about 15 to 20 minutes,she will start right up but will quit again...

2007 is old enough that over years the carburetor needs to be cleaned. trash and debris will collect in the carb causing it to do as you are saying. be sure the fuel lines are off the engine. you tube videos can show you how to clean a carb.

Cub cadet dies 20 minutes after starting

Slacke off the fuel filler cap when it starts to die, if it picks up again the fuel tank breather is blocked.

I 1050 will run fine for about three minutes and then cut off. When i restart the engine starts hunting and running rough. have replaced carb and fuel pump. cub cadet brand

sounds like the gas is bad, drain tank, refill will known good gas. You may want to put a fuel cleaner in with the gas, if you let equipment sit around for awhile with gas in it it will tarnish and draw moisture. Hope this helps Tim
