I took dad's 582 out. He said it was running badly. I took it out discing. You can hear it surge and backfire.

Any help with a diagnosis would be appreciated.

Thanks

Have you checked the plug ( or plugs) on that yet? From what I can here it sounds like an ignition misfire. Is this points or Electronic ign?

Before jumping the gun on anything else. I would check all connections and the condition of the plugs.

Also if you have a way to drain the fuel bowl on the carb, I would just drain it into something and check for water in the gas.

Check the air filter also.

Good luck.

I think those tractors have a 16hp Briggs twin don't they. i have no experience with those at all. If it has points and they are easily accessible then I'd go there after first checking for all the basics.

Also sound like ignition or sticky valves to me. If it has points, are they gapped right?
