Ford 2000 Fuel delivery problems

I have a 72 or 73 Ford 2000. I replaced the Holley with a Zenith, but I can"t seem to get the fuel through the carb. If I add a little gas to the cylinders, it"ll start and stay running. Once it has sat a little while though it won"t restart. I can pull the plugs and they are dry. I"m guessing there"s some type of vacuum issue that is keeping the fuel from being pulled up through the updraft carb. The gasket between the carb and the intake manifold is new and the nuts are tight. There are no leaks on the carb or fuel lines going to it. The intake manifold gasket looks undisturbed. When the tractor is running, it doesn't sound like it has a vacuum leak. Anyone have any ideas? This has me baffled.

Not a dad-gum filter(or screen) on this tractor! Guess the previous owner did away with "em. I found some trash in the shut off valve at the bottom of the tank. Blew out all the lines again. Removed the fuel pump and cleaned it out with carb cleaner. Made a new gasket for it and replaced it. Now she runs pretty good. Where are the screens supposed to be located on this tractor? I know one should be on the shut off valve. I"ve got to get these replaced before something ends up in the carb and I have to take it apart!

I have the same problem. I have a Ford 2000 tractor. It will run great then about the time I get it to the field and it will quit. I resufaced the gas tank. I will trying filling it up the brim. Maybe the gravity flow will help.

Agree with Ultradog. Have a '72 2000 with a Holley carb. Rebuilt the carb but that didn't fix the same problem you seem to be having. Next went after those filters. Was the last one I cleaned (fuel tank) but now I know they're all cleaned. Running sweet... Good luck!

Dodging thunderstorms and tornadoes today, but I'll get on those filters tomorrow. I flowed gas through the lines before hooking up the carb, but it's hard to look at a gravity fed stream and know if you're getting the correct fuel pressure when she's running.

4 filters in that fuel system. First one in the petcock in the bottom of the tank. Second in the top of the fuel pump very front of the engine on the timing cover, third in the sediment bowl behind the carb and 4th in the brass inlet into the carb itself. Clean/check them all one at a time. Those are just great tractors.
