If you want to test everyone's theory, try this.

1) Shut it off your usual way, letting it starve out after shutting the fuel off.

2) Go out the next day and start it without opening the fuel. Let it run the 10 seconds or so until it quits. Leave it that way.

3) Go out the next day and try again. If it runs for another 10 seconds, you probably have a leaking shut-off valve. If not, it was running on residual fuel in the system.

I like Jim's suggestion to try the tractor two days in a row without opening the valve to see if the valve is leaking. Thanks, Jim.
As for the ignition switch not shutting off the engine, it does. I just thought that Farmall recommeded the tractor be starved for fuel before turning off the ignition. I could easily be wrong.

If you intend to leave the tractor unused for more than 2 months, I would shut it off and let it die as described. Not every day, it just does nothing for it at all. Jim
