Hi All, Just hooked a front blade on my B using the manual lift for my mower, (case blade) and the tractor runs great in the summer,but can be a bugger in the winter. Got new autolite non-resistor plugs, got good spark. Timing good. Fuel isnt that old. The oil is straight 30, and the garage isnt heated, does anyone have trouble starting their B (hand start 39) with thick oil? Just curious if that would make much difference.The carb seems o.k. too. Thanks in advance.....Terry

My 38 B get's sluggish in the cold. I think some moisture gets in the mag... Sometimes I get tired out from hand cranking. After while though, all it will take is a half turn lifting the crank, and she pops right off! Go figure... Her way of telling me to stay in by the stove! :>)

I personally would either run 5 or 10w -30 I don't think that the oil thickness is your problem. it sounds like to me that you either have low compression or weak or out of time spark. my father's c used to start hard and we found that the coil in the mag was flakey we made up a make shift electronic ignition and it started quite a bit easier

The saga starts with the following message: Hey guys I have a decision to make. I know what you all will probably suggest and it will probably agree with me way down inside, but here it is. I have a picture blown up and framed in my "tractor room" of a Farmall M. It was my Grandpa's tractor, of which whom I never got to meet. He froze to death getting this tractor out of the barn to pull a truck out of the ditch before I was born. Anyway my dad and aunt had to sell it at the auction, ... [Read Article]
