I finally achieved a good blue spark and still no start. I had fuel pumping to bowl of the updraft carb but decided to CAREFULLY use some ether in the intake . Tractor will start and run a few seconds when fully choked and helped with shot of ether .This leads me to believe clogged fuel jet in carburetor . I have now removed carb and cleaned exterior . Plan now is to disassemble and use my boil it in vinegar trick followed by steel brush wire through jets . Anybody have any other suggestions/advice . I need this tractor running yesterday as the cows are about to get hungry .

Thanks for suggestion . Fortunately I eliminated that darn thing many years ago and replaced it with a mechanical adjuster .

Did you check the fuel shutoff solenoid on carb. lost power to it on my 424 and would not start. has power when key on. keeps carb from draining gas when engine shut off.

The hand trick stops all air from going into the carb so a lot better then a choking plus it tests for good suction and also for gas getting to the carb and threw the carb. If you do not have a good suction then you have a manifold leak or low compression. If you don't gt gas on your hand that means gas is not getting threw the carb and to the engine

If it had been me I would have pulled the air intake hose off the carb and held my hand over the air intake and try to start it. I have had more then one that would start like your saying but not keep running but after i did the hand trick they started and ran just fine. The hand trick can/will pull a clog out and let them run

It's an interesting trick, but beware. I did that once and the engine backfired, burned the skin off my palm. Ouch!!!!!

The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
