Hello Everyone, My 1948 VAC hasn"t been as busy this summer as in past years, in other words I kind of let her run down. My problem is now when I attempt to start it, it only runs for about 30 seconds and then stops. I have to let it sit over night (or an extended period of time)before it will fire again. The engine turns over just fine, there is spark to the plugs, it"s like it just isn"t getting any gas? Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks RBF

Be sure and check your float for a possible leak.

Today's Featured Article - Usin Your Implements: Bucket Loader - by Curtis Von Fange. Introduction: Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'.
