It warmed up to a balmy 43* here today, and in anticipation of Sam's visit to pick up the thatcher, I thought I'd see if I could get the 1886FL running.

 

The first order of business was to get the Mast forward enough to raise the hood.  I managed to do that so I could check the fuel tank, which was dry as a bone, so I added a gallon or so..  Next I checked the air filter, and was pleasantly surprised to find an almost new one!

 

Checked the choke and throttle cables and found that they were free and working. Checked the oil, which looks pretty good, and was probably changed not too long before it was parked.

 

Since the HDT has a 35 AMP alternator in it, I fired it up and used it to jump the 1886FL.

 

Now for the DANG part.  It cranks over OK, but doesn't seem to be drawing fuel.  I hit it with a quick shot of starting fluid, and it does fire on that, but won't keep running.

 

Looks like I'll have to go through the fuel system and make sure that it's getting fuel to the carb.  Once I establish that, I guess I'll find out if the carb needs work as well.

Hopefully it's just a small issue, nothing major.

Hope it's not in the carb. I hate tearing into old carbs. But you gotta do what you gotta do to get it working!

I've had that happen and when I opened the float bowl it was a big mess and the jet's were all clogged.  Hope your problem is as big OB.

I'm jealous as can be.  I have always wanted a forklift Bolens: having a forklift is a good excuse to make a tractor a keeper!  Hope it's an easy one to get running.

I'm sure the carbon needs to be rebuilt. And I'm sure it has a fuel pump so I would Check that as well

If that's the problem, this may be the answer.

I agree with rick as it being the fuel pump. I have the rebuild kits here for the pump if you need it.
