check for SIDE PLAY on your float.if it gets enough side play, or if the float simply sits too close to the side of carb, it will hang when tractor leans to one side.if it hangs and float is up it wont allow fuel in and you simply run out of gas in bowl.once its empty if you move tractor, tap carb or whatever it drops and tractor runs check,, remove drain plug from bottom of carb,install a hose barb with about six inches of clear tubing tied up so you can see level of fuel in bowl. if it drops when you lean left,youve found your problem. one other thing and MOST LIKELY,,,, worn out front axle pin/bushing!!!! lean it left and downhill,axle comes up and hits dist cap.when it does it moves and stops firing. you get it on the level rotor turns, recenters cap ,and presto bingo your running again! been there done that also. its not at ALL uncommon on these. look at the bottom right hand nipple on yur dist cap if its broken axle has hit it and youve likely found your problem! try simply moving cap. if it moves on dist base, locating pins are gone,most likely from axle hitting it.
