Went back after leaving the hottest part of the day behind with the intent of trying to deal with the fuel issue. Planned on pulling tank...and did but was the last thing done. I'd put in 2 full gallons of fresh gas...so pulled the outlet//bowl to draining it back into a container it came out looking like muddy water in color. The fittings going to the bowl were filled with scaly junk. Well THAT would be an issue...the dribble getting through is enough to keep it going at idle but not load.
However there is another problem. During the attempts earlier to get the tractor loaded up, it was getting harder to start, ie more click-click-clicking. Solenoid is trying to work but isn't kicking the starter over. On closer inspection the solenoid apparently lost a chunk at some point and so had a piece of duct tape over it...and could see inside when pushing the button to see it go CLICK. Pulled the starter with intent to clean and also found a crack going along the back end of the solenoid. Not sure if that has to do with or not.
Also needs a new resistor between button//coil...the one on there was cracked wide open and fell in half (connected only by the internal wire) when I unbolted the coil to get it out of the way.
Just in case, are there any online sources and or compatible older truck starters for replacements? or At least the solenoid? Of course need to work with the Continental 134ci. I know some of the older ford tractor parts were interchangeable like that. I'll be checking a local auto-parts store...I've seen them handling hydraulics and SOME equipment. I'll go to the local equipment rental place that also sells parts...as last resort...since no doubt they will want parts $$ plus some.
