Question about Ford 8n,9n,2n, Tractor Starter With Drive

1 Answer

Cuts out and then quits. In about 10-15 min. will start again.

After an hour or so of bush hogging, my 1968 Ford 4000 tractor will begin to cut out and then completely quit. When there is more gasoline in it, it takes longer to do this but it does do it eventually everytime. After letting it cool off for about 15-30 minutes. it will start but again after a certain period of time, it will stall out again. Also the longer that I let it cool off, the longer before it stalls again. Seems like the muffler is getting the fuel too hot but a friend said that it also could be the carbeurator or a coil.

Mine did this too. THe semi-transparent fuel filter will look like no gas is in it if you have the problem I had. The gas cap on the tank has a tiny breather hole to keep it from coming under a vacuum as gas runs out. Push thru it with a toothpick to clear the hole. That's all it was. But I did have some black debris clogging the filter and had same symptom.

John Deere 65 mower cuts for about 20 min. then dies, will start right up again, cuts maybe 5 min., dies again

You have a partly clogged fuel line or the vent in the gas cap is clogged.
