I got my "new" tractor home and it is the hardest starting engine when it is cold out (25 degrees in barn). Well after the tractor warms up it runs good BUT rich. It will restart fine once the engine is warm. But, the next day, starts hard again.
I am cleaning the fuel petcock screen, fuel pump screen, sediment bowl, and inlet on carb. I figure this is just for good measure.
But when I took apart the carb, I found the float return spring was missing. Am I right in assuming this is the major reason it is running rich? This spring helps close off the needle right? It was really pushing gas out the muffler one time, enough to start backfiring.

Any advice or info before I put everything back together would be great.

The wife is still trying to figure out why I would buy a tractor that runs, then take it all apart!! Told her, I am just trying to make it run better!

Two helpful ideas, put electronic ignition on it, and if it's got a Holley carb on it replace it with a Zenith. Holley made a good carburetor for automobiles but the ones for tractors lacks something to be desired.

Everyone sure seems to hate the holley carb. I am going to put the float spring in on Friday, and finish off the rest of the fuel system. Hopefully that will solve the rich fuel problem. In the meantime I am going start looking for a Zenith. The electronic ignition, is that the "pertronics" brand? Everyone uses those on older cars and just loves them.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
