Thanks for all the replies, guys. I am truly grateful. Will get the Heet as suggested by Dollar Bill and the spark plug gap tool. No, I did not know the spark plug gaps needed setting out of the box - thanks Caryc.
Bruce thanks for the good advice. I checked the screens -all 3 were good. The flow from the carb was also good and steady for several minutes.
I don't have a hand propane torch. Just to clarify, you said I can use carb cleaner or WD40- would I just be spraying one of these on the areas you mentioned and listen to the engine?
The carb that I replaced was falling off the manifold - one of the bolts would not tighten - it just kept turning. Also the bolt at the bottom of the carb was rounded so much that it would not open and it was missing a spring for the choke plate. As for the sediment bowl assembly it was missing the filter screen in the tank and the open/close valve seal was about all gone.
Should mention the tractor came with a gas tank cap that had no seal - so it does not fit on snugly. The hose from the carb outlet is also not in good condition at all.
Last thing - I did get the tractor to start and run/idle without having to hold the choke & without surging after I replaced the carb (albeit for a short while). But then fuel was not flowing from the sediment bowl and that led me to the screen in the gas tank which was missing. After replacing the sediment bowl I noticed the distributor lead and after fiddling with that is when the latest problems surfaced. I don't know if any of this helps but I guess the more information you have the better.
