yesterday i got one step closer in starting the tractor i actually had a battery in it and the motor was turning over but wouldnt fire, there was a lil bit of white smoke coming out of the muffler but that was it, i checked the sediment bowl and screen fuel line to the carb and they were both clean, the carb had a lil amount of gas in it (so i think its maybe gummed up) i tore the whole carb off but didnt get into ripping things off to try and clean bc i didnt know what would need it and what wouldnt, my neighbor (the previous owner) said to put some dry gas in the tank and that should clean it out, any other suggestions if this doesnt work?

he never used the actual starter to start the tractor like i was, he just used the crank w a garden tractor batt to power the starter....

Do not open up the carb unless you buy a kit for it first. Most of the time if you open one up you will destroy the gasket and with out a new one it will not work as it should. Sounds like your jumping to fast. You need to back up some and trouble shoot before taking things apart. Things like check for spark, check for fuel flow out the bottom of the carb at the drain plug, then and only then should you open up stuff so you know where to take what off

They will smoke a little and not run if out of time. Check your firing order and plug wires.

Today's Featured Article - Dad's Old Silver King and Joe Capalco - by Woody E. Diehl. My father, Charles Diehl, grew up in the Elsworth, Ohio area during the Depression on a small working farm. I never saw the place, nor was I around during his early years. What I know about those hard times comes from listening to Dad and his old pals reminisce from time to time. One of the old timers that would sit with Dad and chew the fat about the 'good ole days' was Joe Capalco. Joe wasn't like most of my Dad's friends. He rarely worked that we knew of. Always had plenty of time ... [Read Article]
