  • 8N stalls when tilted left
  • I have a 1951 8N. It runs really well except when running along a slope with the left side downhill. Then it begins to stumble and will stall. It runs fine in all other orientations. Any thoughts? Thanks.

  • My battery has come loose it has let the positive post touch the hood/frame when on a lefty...
    It`ll cut out or cut off...
    This Might be the problem with yours, check the battery mount...
    Mine is now "Dennis-rigged" with a strap around the battery fastened to the tray...
    I`ve got sorted out now, but it would let the battery slide a bit before...


    Please everyone Stay SAFE,
    Dennis

  • Put more fuel in the tank.

    If that does not solve the problem, rebuild the carburetor, paying particular attention to the float level and float drop adjustments.

  • Someone put an old NASCAR engine in it........

    Your float is hanging up in the carb bowl from being loose on the pin.

    Center the float and adjust it for 1/4".

  • He may want to do a complete rebuild as well if it's been a while and since it will be all apart anyway. Be sure the needle and float valve are seated right.
