I recently bought a farm. This farm came with a 1948 or 49 farmall H. The tractor is in good shape and has been running recently but not a lot of tune up or maintenance work done on the machine.
I am currently experiencing trouble where 2 things are happening.
1.) The tractor requires a jump everytime to start. (I recently replaced the battery and I do not think that is the problem.)
2.)The tractor once running will idle fine and run for a short period of time and then for some reason the tractor will act as if it runs out of gas or loses spark. I then have to wait a few minutes, jump start the tractor again and it will run for a short period and then do the same thing.
I have recently replaced the condenser, distributor cap, spark plugs, and battery. I have also cleaned out the fuel tank, sediment bowl, and sprayed carb cleaner(gumout) into the carb.
I am wondering if something is wrong with the generator? or possibly the coil/condenser that is causing me to lose spark. I feel like I have ruled out the fuel as the problem. Could it possibly be the carb?
I need help. This is my first time posting I was referred to this site by a friend and I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
