Thanks in advance for any insight to this problem.
Here is the situation with my To-30. New cap, rotor, plugs, wires, coil,and a pertronix electronic ignition. New ignition switch and all new wiring. New gas tank, sediment bowl and fuel line.
Quick to start up and runs smoothly for approximately 3-5 minutes then loses power, sputters, backfires and then quits. Checked spark....strong and bright. Gas flows hard and fast from bottom of carb. It will then not restart until it cools off a bit. Then it will happen all over again. I do notice that the exhaust manifold gets extremely hot very quickly; more than I ever recall on any tractor. Could I possibly be looking at a manifold leak or exhaust valve problem?
