You have to drain the fuel tanks on your B's, so do this... get an old 100% cotton flannel shirt with no holes. Must be flannel and must be 100% cotton. Drape the shirt over a clean bucket and drain the fuel through the shirt into the bucket. If it has water in it then the gas will end up in the bucket and the water will end up in the shirt. Don't ask me why, but the gas goes through the flannel and the water will not. End result is good gas with no water.

its not the gas. The 1952 started doing this quite a while ago and we have been trying to fix it for a while so different gas has been used. We dont use ethinol in the tractors at all.

Try plugged fuel line, or plugged intake to the fuel bowl. I've had flakes of rust intermittantly block flow and act as you say.

The 1949 started doing this just last week so they did not start doing this at the same time. The symptoms are exactly the same though. In fact the only diference I know of is that the 1949 has a compression of about 100psi while the 1952 is about 50-55. I seems like it probably is somthing sort of simple but we cant find anything wrong.
