  • Jubilee dies when a load is put on the PTO
  • Ran great for years. Just did a tuneup - points, plugs, wires, and rebuilt the carb. Now when I put a load on the PTO it runs for about a minutes then dies regardless of full throttle.
    How do I adjust the little knobs on the carb - if that is the problem.
    Ideas?

  • Points are out of adjustment. Happens to me when the points get worn and need to be cleaned and adjusted or replaced. They always seem to move a bit when replaced and need adjusting soon AFTER

  • You got the plug wires on wrong.

  • Sounds like a fuel flow problem. Could be electric though?

  • You just rebuilt the carb and you don't know how to adjust it?


    6 volt or 12 volt?

    Donít guess at the cause of the problem; guessing can get expensive. And leave you breathless chasing every guess.......it could be this, it could be that......just troubleshoot the problem and leave the guess work for buying Lottery tickets.

    As soon as the tractor stops running, not 5 minutes later, check for spark and fuel.

    You need to answer 2 questions before you do anything else:

    With the bolt in the carb bowl removed and the gas on, will the fuel flow fill a pint jar in less than 2 minutes?

    Next, get out your adjustable gap spark checker * , open the gap to 1/4", hook it up, turn the key on and crank the engine. Does the spark jump 1/4"? Post back with the answers.

    And do not buy a new part for the tractor until you can answer this question: how do I know the part on the tractor is defective?

    * Don't own an adjustable gap spark checker? Buy one! Not a test light! Until then, take an old plug, open the gap 1/4" ground it to the head & look for spark. Itís not the color of the spark that counts; itís the distance it jumps. https://www.amazon.com/AMPRO-T71240-Energy-Ignition-Tester/dp/B00A8FO87S/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1513273147&sr=8-4-fkmr1&keywords=ampro+spark+checker

  • On the carb, really just put in a new gasket and needle valve. Didn't change any screw settings so didn't think I needed to worry about their being rhe problem.

    Thanks for the tips... I'll give them a try.
