Having some carberation issues with my Case 222.  After about 30 minutes of use the engine starts "lugging" and smoke is seen around the air filter.  When shutting down the tractor the engine runs on, even after the throttle is shut off.  Any ideas?

Have you checked to see if the air filter is clean or if the choke is open all the way yet? If it was mine, I would check those and also check the condition of the plug and points (if equipped). then go from there. Good luck.

Sounds like its getting hot.  Check the screen on the flywheel to make sure its not plugged. Also check under the cooling tins around the cylinder and make sure they are open.  When running,  make sure there is a good amount of airflow across the cylinder head.

I have a feeling you might have nailed this problem! I'm rushing around getting ready to head out, and didn't even think of that! Sure sounds like you right!

This would be my guess.

Yep, dirty cooling system, or motor tins removed would be my guess too.

Thanks to everyone who responded so quickly.  The engine cooling fins are clear and the louvers in the front of the hood are also clear so air flow is not the issue.  The air cleaner has been tapped out and blown out with compressed air but I will pick up a new one and a new spark plug this weekend.  Let you know how it turns out.

Finally found a supplier for the proper air filter.  Put it in and it runs like a charm.  Thanks to everyone who responded with ideas.  Great job!
