I have a case 1737 skidsteer. Over the summer of 2020, it started getting harder to start. I believe it needs a carburetor rebuild. WOT and no choke would get it going. Now January 2021, it only pops on one or two cylinders. Changed plugs, checked points, cap ,rotor and wires. All are working and I'm getting spark at each plug. I ran a compression test and found two cylinders at 90 and two at 95psi. Is that too low or should the engine start at that compression. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've got a 1740, so familiar with most things on that machine except the gas motor. If you have a good spark, air and fuel it should start, assuming you didn't change the timing. Do you have good fuel supply to the carb? Manual or electric fuel pump working? That should be a pretty simple carb to re build. I think they might have an electric fuel shut off solenoid on the carb....might be worth checking that as well. If you suspect its flooded maybe disconnect the fuel supply to the carb, let it dry out and see if it will fire with a small shot of gas or ether in the top.

I think it should start and run there at that compression, it is low but even, I'm guessing that you have a carburetor problem which has soaked your spark plugs down and fouled them. If the carb is the problem it will soak new plugs right away. I am assuming that you have set the points accurately and have a good spark. I do not know where you got your tuneup parts but do not assume that the condenser is good just because it is new, I have had much problems with the condensers in the most popular tune up kits in our industry, I'll say no more as these kits are sold everywhere. Personally I go to Napa and get brand name stuff. your system should throw at least a 1/2 inch fat blue spark.
