Question about RTO Massey-Ferguson Tractor TE20, TO20, TO30, ITFE2
I have an old massey Feerg 28 (1953 according to date on starter motor. It had been sitting for about a year without going. Have cleaned out fuel tank, tap, bowl, new plugs, leads etc. Thing starts ok and drives.
However, when throttle opened up in 4th gear it dies and conks out. A friend suggested air getting sucked in above carb so gasket replaced. I haven't fiddled with mixture settings as don't want to make things worse as I don't kniow what I'm doing !! Any suggestions as to what to try next?
Although you have basically changed the fuel in the system i would suggest a bottle or half bottle of gas line anti-freeze in the next couple tanks of gas it will absorb any water in the system. there are also some after market fluids that you may want to try. i believe one is called "gum out". after a year (or less) gas tends to "gum" up and restrict fuel flow.
you should see results almost immediately. if there is a vacuum leak you will hear a hissing noise.
