Case 830 ignition trouble

My 62 Case 830 is giving me fits. When it starts it runs great. Right after starting (when it decides to)it runs pretty rough...misses...until it warms up, and then starts easily and runs great. Sometimes it wont start at all. It will turn over, firing on one cylinder every now and then, and never start. It seems as if its not getting enough fire to kick it off. I've swapped out the points, cap, rotor and coil off of my other 830 that runs with no problems. No luck. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

Ensign so it"s LPG ? Check that equalizer line.

Both of these tractors have an Ensign carb on them.

Condensers will give you fits, try swapping that too. (best idea is to convert to electronic ignition).

If not I'd start looking at the carb. rebuild kits from napa are pretty reasonable. Its just about the same carb on the Allis Chalmers D19 I think.

Did you ever find out what was wrong? My father has a Case 830 with similar problems. It ran flawlessly until it went to a shop for minor service and fluid changes. It now has a new coil, cap, rotor, points, condenser and carb. It only runs sometimes, and even then only at idle. One day it fired right up and ran fine then three days later it would not run past idle. It sounds like the timing is moving on it"s own but there is no excessive play in the distributor. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.
