I have a '39 Ford 9n, and until recently it ran perfectly. I use it for grass cutting. I used it once this year, then we had a real wet spell, and the tractor was not used. I went to start it, and it died after a few moments, like there was no fuel. I removed the carb, stripped it, cleaned it and put it back. It ran for a short while, then died (less than one minute) I removed the carb again, and removed everything, cleaned everything, and put everything back. Again, it will not run. It starts easily enough, but just stops. Immediate attempts to restart meet failure, but leave it a while and it will start,for a brief moment, then stop..
I am at my whits end PLEASE, should anyone have any thoughts, let me know.
Failing that, does anyone know of a tractor repair facility that will touch a Ford 9n, in the western Tennessee area?
