I've put up with this extremely frustrating issue for many years now with my otherwise faithful old 'workhorse' 2N, and it's getting worse again.
Whenever running with the tractor leaning to the left, especially facing downhill, she floods out and stalls after about 10 seconds, and is nearly impossible to restart without letting her sit for an hour. When I do finally get her to restart, she sputters and blows black smoke for a little while before getting up to speed.
I've thoroughly cleaned out the tank, bowl and fuel line screens, *replaced* the carb with a new one, checked the float level countless times, re-routed the copper fuel line, all with no change.
My neighbor has a 9N with the same carb and fuel system, and his will run up, down, left or right, on any hill, with no problem.
I've about had it with this. Have never heard of anyone else having this issue, but suspect it's something simple I'm missing. Thought the new carb would solve it, but it didn't.
Any ideas are welcome. I've owned this old girl for some 35 years now, but have begun thinking it's time for a new one. Wish I could afford it.
PS - Have run Mobil One synthetic oil in this 2N for many years, and it's made a HUGE difference when using her in winter.
