Well Dad's tractor had sat around for most of two years but we got somebody to poke at it a little and make it run to push snow.

And it does. Sorta.

In order to start it you now have to have it half-throttle and full-choke. And it must always be at full-choke, no matter how warm it gets. There is a dead-spot in the throttle from fully closed to almost half-throttle, where it makes no difference at all if you move the throttle. If you speed the tractor up too much it will stall suddenly. But if you close the throttle real quick you can make it recover to a slow idle.

Dad had this tractor set with an amazingly low idle RPM, but even then it at least got the oil pressure gage to go clear over to the high end. Now the oil gage only comes up to half. I'm not worried about the oil thing first though, I'm just saying that too much laying around has caused it to develop an issue or two.

I'm suspecting an air leak between the carb and the intake manifold to start, but then after that, I need guidance. I've never set a carb before, but it's time I learn. I tried to push snow with it and it can't be trusted to stay running, and has no power. This was one of Dad's favorite horses, so this is just unacceptable.

So after I install that new carb gasket, how do I go about adjusting this thing? Thanks!
