I would greatly appreciate any ideas on how to get this wonderful old machine running. Pretty sure its a 1954-1956 Major...doesnt want to run and heres the story: Previous owner said it runs like a champ...but has sat for 2-3 years. After putting new batteries in and cranking it over and over, she started, I drove it around for 15 minutes or so then parked it, seemed to idle fast, but ran. I changed the fuel and oil filters, added new fuel with cleaner additive, new oil, and replaced tranny oil, also new oil in air filter... primed and bled fuel line and got ready for her show of gratitude...cranked her over and over till she started....engine raced even throttled down, put her in gear and went back and forth a bit and the engine calmed down some in gear, almost weak though...push in the clutch and she would RACE!...back in gear and she died...I did this routine a couple times, adjusting the fuel intake screw...no change, also adjusting the diaphragm screw...no change...racing engine but dies in gear...hard to start even warm...? Thank you in advance for your time. This tractor would help a number of people in my neighborhood..
