Finally got a chance to mess around with the WC I bought a few weeks ago. Took the carb off and cleaned it out a bit, put it back on, tried to start it, no go. Then I noticed the venturi sitting on the work bench. Put the carb back together correctly, she fired right up. Have been having some trouble with it dying on me. Seems like there's some crud coming throught the fuel lines. It starts right back up after it dies though. Spent an hour or so scraping and degreasing. Could use some more of that. Still needs to be rewired and have all the other little stuff done. I'm just glad she actually runs!

Remove the fuel bowl housing from the gas tank and make sure the inlet to the bowl housing is not full of crud. They take in gas from the bottom of the tank. Flush out the tank good when you have the bowl housing out.
When the inlet to the housing is plugged the engine will run a minute then stop. After a few minutes the gas from the tank will slowly push gas out of the bowl to the carburetor and the engine will run untill the carburetor goes dry because of resticted flow from the tank.

Hope this is the cause of the engine dying.

Today's Featured Article - The Fordson F Ignition System - by Anthony West. A fellow restorer contacted me earlier this year asking for some help and advice on a model F that he was restoring. He had over a period of months spent a fair amount of his hard earned cash on replacement parts for the old "trembler" ignition. Sadly though all his efforts seemed to be a waste of time and money as he still couldn''t get the temperamental old thing to run correctly!! If i said that this was a little frustrating for him that would be "conservative" in fact the problem had reduce ... [Read Article]
