My Ford 3000 gas. Runs great but has started to quit runnning after being on for anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Will start again after sitting for about 20 minutes. Any suggestions.

Web, Tell me, does the engine just shut down completely, or does it sputter for a while and slowly die. My 3000 has been doing the latter (see my related posts). Yesterday I let the tractor run @2000rpm and just sat and watched it. After the engine got good and warm, the gas level in the sediment bowl, which was full, began to slowly drop and raise. With the tractor setting level, it kept running through this condition, but when I'm out in the fields, and the tractor is tipped to one side, the gas level would probably drop below the filter and just suck air. I'm hearing everything from vapor lock to failing fuel pump. Mine is an "early" 1967, what's yours? Also, the length of time it takes for the tractor to act up used to be about 45 minutes, but now is down to 15-20.

good idea to always look at the points for wear and pitting, but sounds like a coil or condenser. The condenser is cheaper, so try it first. Then, next time it gets hot and quits, immediately see if you can "manually breaker the points, with a jumper, and see if the coil fires when you do." If, not - it's probably the coil. If it does fire, and won't crank normally, it may be a break somewhere in the dist cap, or coil to dist high voltage wire. You can also develop a short in the distributor low voltage lead in from the coil. So, open the points to widest, and look for voltage on the dist-coil low voltage line. If there is voltage, ok, if not - you have a break in the primary winding of the coil, or a grounded distributor, and look for the ground where the wires lead into the dist. Good luck. RKS

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
