I'm having a couple of issues with a JD316. This was my father's and it's been sitting since he passed away (3 years now). The last time it ran there was a tremendous oil leak out the right side. After a power wash I discovered the problem, leaking oil pressure sending unit. Replaced it and no leaks, problem solved. Nope, just beginning. I tried to start it but no fire. Appeared to be coil related,replaced coil. Might as well r/p points, condensor, and plug wires. Now were cooking!. Got fire, started! Well didn't run as well as I had hoped. Suspected carb issues. Took the top of the carb off. Cleaned all jets and metering orifices. Now it runs pretty good at idle with choke open. When increasing throttle it dies. It will run at fast speed with the choke about 3/4 closed. I'm thinking maybe the high speed jet is not quite clean yet. Any suggestion? The replacement of the carb would be a dog of a job to do since it's mounted from the bottom and through the intake manifold. That's one issue, now for the next;
When I had it running, even at fast speed the charging indicator came on. Check voltage at the battery and regulator, not charging. With the alternator being somewhat open on this tractor is it possible that it needs a good cleaning? Keeping in mind that this tractor has sat for 3 years.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
