Question about RTO Massey-Ferguson Tractor TE20, TO20, TO30, ITFE2

1 Answer

I have a 1950 TO 20. It starts just fine, runs 5 minutes sputters, like it is out of gas, and quits. It won't restart but I can wait a little while and it will restart but do the exact same thing. Any clue what is wrong? Does it have a fuel filter that could be stopped up?

My first guess would be that you are not getting correct flow of fuel into the carburator. It would run for a short while on the fuel in the bowl then konk out when it gets exhausted. Waiting a while the fuel would build up and then run fine until it is exhausted again. First thing to do is check fuel flow by removing the line into the carb. If you are gettng good flow then I suggest removing the carb and cleaning paying special attention to the needle valve and float. If you have not had a carb kit installed in recent memory it may be a good idea to do that. I had multiple issues with my '50 until a complete cleaning and kit was installed.

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

My 2004 Honda shadow vt600 vlx quits running after approximately 10 minutes of riding. It just shuts off and won't start. Has a new battery, plugs and changed oil & filter. What will fix this prob


How does it quit? Just suddenly stops, or coughs and sputters (probably gas), or gets jerky (ignition). Does it run just fine and then just stops, or does it run crappy and then stop? How long do you have to wait until it starts again? Is there a choke? Do you turn it off?

no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

5 years ago for cap & rotor???? It sounds like it's in dire need of a complete tune up - plugs. wires, cap, rotor, all fluids & filters ESPECIALLY fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Do your tune ups more frequently like every 30K - not wait 5 years!

Hedge trimmer starts fine then stops after 5 minutes


Carburetor high speed adjustment ( screw nearest the filter ) open ( counterclockwise ) 1/2 turn.
Adjust again as needed to run when hot.
make sure the gas mixture ratio is as required.
