  • Need advise: I've been pushing a lot of snow this winter, and my 1950 8N has performed beautifully until today. She starts good and the engine runs smooth from idle to wide-open without the clutch engaged. When I put her into any gear and let out the clutch she starts to sputter and doesn't come out of it. Seems to sputter less with lower RPM's.
    Fairly recently rebuilt carb, new gas, clean sentiment bowl, new spark plugs. I haven't noticed any black smoke from the exhaust. Any thoughts on my first line of attack?

  • I have had the same reaction from a bad set of points.

  • How is the fuel flow to the carb? Take the plug out of the bottom of the carb and see if it will fill a pint jar in a minute or two. If that looks good then check you points. Are they still gaped correctly or did the rubbing block wear down so they won't open anymore?

  • Pull the screen out of the elbow going into the carb and clean it.
