CA cuts out when hot

I put a new coil on the CA and that fixed the problem for a while now it is back to cutting off when hot. It will restart but will cut right back off. Ideas anyone?

Check all wiring, my old D14 did that,

Mice had built a nest behind one of the side panels, they had chewed the covering off one ignition wire. As I was driving along, tractor moving over the plowed ground, this bare spot on the wire would swing against the steering column. Temporary cutting off the motor.

I am not that great of a trouble shooter, so it took me a while to find the problem.

I was about to tear into the carb, fuel tank, lines, wiring harness, etc.

Cleaned out the nest, wrapped the bare spot on the wire with electrical tape, problem solved.
Hope yours is as easy, but I felt like a fool after finding the problem.

Those little bastards can cause lots of problems.

Bad coil can behave like that also.

Take the hood off and run to see if it helps,I had a D10 that would not run right in hot weather once it ran for about 30 minutes.Apparently the ethanol in the gas was boiling in the tank and causing vapor lock.Also move the gas line away from the engine and go to the outside of the air cleaner with it will help to cool the gas.

First off is it 6 volts or 12 volts??? Lack of info can make it harder for us to help you help your self. First thing to do when it does that is check the spark and make sure you have a good blue/white spark that jumps a 1/4 inch gap.
Next pull the carb drain plug and make sure you have a good steady flow of gas for a few minutes. Catch the gas to look for dirt/water/rust etc.

The condenser in the distributor can do the same thing, try replacing it.

Take the gas line off at the carburetor and blow air back into the gas tank with the gas cap off and see if it helps.

My mowing B does that, but it is because it has an unvented gas cap. I just loosen the cap and it starts running fine again. Guess I should find the correct gas cap, but it hasn't been a priority. David from jax

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
