I have a 1250 gas Cockshutt tractor with a Fiat engine. It has the 24 volt system. It will run for about a half hour then starts to chug and quit. It seems as soon as it heats up it does this. Any ideas besides driving it into a swamp.

Where are you located? I was trying to help a man in Ohio and lost his phone number. One thing I would check is valve clearance. They have a small clearance and as the valves and seats wear clearance the clearance and then valves are held open and it will not run. I would like to talk to you more about your tractor. How about an e-mail address. I always liked those little tractors. J.

I am in Canada, I like the tractor it came with a solid front loader and bucket. I removed the fly wheel off the back this spring to make it safer to teach my son how to operate. I noticed last year if it ran for a while or worked it hard that it would start to chug like its starved for fuel. I thought maybe its a float issue or a pluged fuel filter. I still think it might be a carb issue.

Check to see if you have fuel to the lift pump. I have had this problem on a 1255 Oliver and also on a 5040 Allis which has the Fiat engine. Both times the fuel line was blocked by what looked like matted hair. Once cleaned out they ran fine.

Hey James,
Where abouts did you find the clog in the fuel line. Between the tank and the filter or after the filter. I have cleaned out the clear glass sediment jar and ran a few cans of seafoam.

Check the fuel line where it goes onto the filter.
