  • A little TLC
  • Juat a little bit is all it takes to keep these Ns running...
    A While back I got on here asking what could be the matter with "Shifty th` 50"...
    She`d start running rough when it got warmed up to operating temps or a little warmer...about 30 minutes...
    I got some suggestions from our Gurus;;;

    And AS USUAL Y`all were spot ON!

    Yes, it took a few 8N-Buck$ and some time, BUT She runs GREAT NOW!
    General Tune up parts is all I put in it = Distributor Cap, Plugs, points and I swapped coils since I had one and it was suggested also...
    I Got out mowing and about three hours later she didn`t "miss a lick"...

    Thanks for putting up with me,
    Dennis

  • Re: A little TLC
  • Talking to myself,
    I went this morning and double checked points gap, 1/4" spark and fuel flow > after it started acting up...
    Running rough is described as Misfiring and rattling...
    Checks were OK on all...

    BUT > When she first fired up she ran fine, then throughout the hook up of the cultivator, she was still running good...
    Then about 2 minutes into the first pass in the row working, she started running rough for the rest of that row, I lifted the cultivator turned around, she ran better with no load, then started the second pass and barely made it to the end...
    I did make it back to the yard > running rough...

    That`s when I double checked everything,
    Dennis

  • Re: A little TLC
  • She run good for a while, about 2 gallons of gas run through it...
    Next day, though, she went to acting up...
    I`m following suggestions Y`all have made this week on another problemchild we`re discussing...
    Another thread sounds like what mine is doing >>> (Runs a spell then acts up)

    I don`t think I`ve worn her completely out,
    Dennis

  • Re: A little TLC
  • I`ll try one more time to see what might be the problem...
    BUT I suspect she done decided to be the "parts tractor" I bought it for :-)

  • It is much too hot to be outside working on it today in the heat of the day...
    I`ll get on it early morning,
