Hi all. My '55 60 has been running like a top ever since i did a complete tuneup back about 2 yrs. ago. I bushhog with it about once a month & it always starts immediately with choke on & slight throttle. Today i decided to wash the hood. Tractor started immediately so i could move it near a water hose. It never did get to full operating temperature before i shut it down to do the washing. During the wash i was very careful not to get water near the electronics, coil, etc. Anyway, when i went to fire it back up to put it away i thought maybe i still needed to choke it a little. I may have flooded it, not sure, but it didn't want to start. My question is when i try to start it again in the morning, should i apply choke or just leave the choke off alltogether? I know other times when i run it i get it to full operating temperature before i shut it down.....so if i restart right after that i use no choke whatsoever....& it fires right up. The only difference this time was it never got to full operating temp before i shut it down. I'm baffled. In the morning is it best to use the choke or leave it off alltogether.

Ok, i used the suggestion of starting without any choke. He stumbled a bit so moved it to full choke, then half choke real quick cause he fired strong, left it there for about 10 seconds and OFF with the choke alltogether. I guess i was more paranoid that i should have been. Strange how the same model tractors can start so differently than another. Probably depends a lot on carburator settings, etc. Anyway, i'm a happy guy and got some bushhogging done. Thanks for the help !

Something that I learned by accident this summer was to play with the throttle while cranking the engine over. Leave the choke off. I do my best to reach down and grab the throttle linkage and bounce the throttle back and forth while cranking it over. Did this a couple of times on the 620's when they got flooded. Bouncing the throttle really helps get the B going anytime.

Thanks, Guys. I haven't tried it yet but i've been thinking of changing out the spark plugs anyway so before i try firing it up again i think i'll do that. I've been running the same plugs for about 2 yrs. now. I'll let you know how i make out.

Should be OK either way but I'd let it roll over a few times without the choke. If it doesn't fire then give it some choke. With my A I usually go to half choke as soon as it pops.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
