ALL carbs ice up and it is part of how they work. If the did not your engine would not run it is due to the atomizing of the fuel that in turn cause the manifold area to get cold and it is just normal operation of a carb and you old cars and trucks do the same thing. If it bugs you don't look at it. Yes some time for a bit the engine will not run as well but it should clear up once the engine warms up more. Also opening up the main jet a tad bit helps. So as I said it is normal and nothing to worry about

Out of all the old gas tractors I have, none have the carbs ice up on them.

My 544 never ices. I"ve seen ice in my 8N once. My 560 almost always gets ice on it. Doesn"t stop it running, though.

You have either been lucky of you just do not stop to look. It is a fact of life and how a carb works that causes the manifold to get real cool. Ya it does not happen all the time and few people ever see it happen. Start a tractor then go over and hold your hand close to the top of the carb where it bolts to the manifold and you will find that it is very cool and if weather conditions are right if will frost up. On many engines you will never notice a problem but it can be it things so happen to be just right. That is why on the older cars and trucks they had the warm air tube gong into the air cleaner to keep the carb warm and help it from frosting up. Another fact the Indians of the South west used evaporation of wet hides to make cooling systems for there homes and some times even ice

Possibly different fuel blend for your region of the country. My old case SC did the same thing. Old and all others are correct, normal. Find a way to warm the manifold. Airplane engines have adjustable manifold heat for this same issue.

Caused by weather conditions and normal carb function. If things are right yes it can cause problems. If it is cold and humid where you are yes it can cause a problem and then the next year not a problem. If you have a way to cover that side of the engine with a trap or sheet of metal etc you will find holding the engine heat in will stop that problem. Every year I see posts like this and every year people are told the same thing. Been on here now for over 10 years and I have said the same thing year after year and others have agreed with what I have said time and time again

stalled out wont run unless you pull choke out after it dies. once you wait about 15 min. it will run for about 10 then it starts all over again.

Open the main jet up just a little bit till you find the spot that works. When it is cold out some times you need a richer mix to run well. You can also make a side cover to help hold in heat. Some people make a cover from foil so as to help hold more heat in the area. That is why on the older cars they had a tube that went from the exhaust manifold into the air cleaner intake to pull the warm air into the carb so that carb icing did not happen but on a tractor doing that would not be easy

Engine runs cooler on rich mixture, hotter on lean.

Old and Gordo -- You can richen the mixture because cold air is heavier than warm air, thus more air allows the mixture to be richened in cold weather. If you heat the air then you lose the advantage of the cold air--but if it is necessary to get rid of the frost, there is no choice.
