I have an circa 1940 AC Model B. It has a hand crank. It starts great when cold on the first crank with an effortless half turn. I then will mow for about 20-30 min. then it will just stall out. I added new spark plugs and oil/filter with the same result. How often should you clean out the glass bowl on fuel system? It has some sediment in the bottom. Is it difficult to rebuild the old carb?
Any thoughts? Stumped a little.

Does it restart immediately after "stalling" ? It's nice that you changed the oil/filter, but that won't have any effect on "stall". Plugs were also nice but GENERALLY bad plugs are more likely to cause starting problems. Sediment bowl should be kept clean anything in it could possibly get to the carb. Depending on how it quits and restarts I might look to ignition problems before rebuilding a carb.

From the time I was a young boy growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I would spend a considerable amount of time helping my father repair or rebuild equipment and engines, etc. on our 2 1/2 acre "spread". Pop always dreamed of having more acreage out in the country where he could retire and tinker as much as he wanted and often reminisced about his boyhood days on his grandfathers farm in Montecello, ...
