My 47 H has been giving me a lot of trouble lately. It will start up and run perfectly for 1-2 minutes, then start running rough and sputtering and spitting. It will not idle as well. Then it will take all it has to re-start after shutting the engine off. Any ideas? It's my manure spreader tractor and I need to know what she needs to be running like a top again. Thanks in advance!

I am with the others. Fuel, condensor, coil, or short at distributor housing and points connection.

David, open the drain on your carb and make sure theres a good flow there, if there is, Id suspect coil or condensor.

always easiest to check electrical as a go / no go first... then fuel.

for electrical.. power to coil for battery ign.... and points on battery ignition and maggie's ar ethe 2nd check. on bat ign.. next is feed thru.

I check condensors and coil last. they fail the least.. even though they likely get repalced the most by shotgun diagnostics.

easy to check both with an ohm meter for fast n dirty go/no go test. same with dizzy insulator and side to breaker plate conductors.

make sure you let enough fuel out that you are not just draining fuel bowl let it run out long enough that needle has to open and come in through the line

Mine had rust in the gas tank and kept plugging the screen at the bottom of the tank. Finally took the tank off and had it cleaned and coated on the inside. Problem gone.

I haven't had much time to work on her in the past few months. It's on the backburner until I get the k20 out of the shop and get her out where I can see what I'm doing. I hope it is just a plugged screen, and nothing more.

Ifn you'd drag that H around with one of your other tractors, it would make it easier on yourself :!: :lol: Sorry but it was too easy :idea: :!: :oops: :)
