I'm looking to purchase another GT, a Cub 1250 with a mower deck, a set of wheel weights, and a set of rear lights for my other 1200. The currant owner claims that when it starts it runs but seems to lose power going up hills, if he shuts it off it will start again. If he trys to start it the next day it takes a while for it to start, then of course the same problems with losing power.
He claims that he has replaced:
coil (3 times)
new points push rod
new spark plug
new head gasket
cleaned / rebuilt carb
Any possible insight from anyone experienced with these as to what could be the problem ? Timing issues ? Is it difficult to time these engines ? Something else perhaps ? He also claims that when he replaced the head gasket he noticed that the piston was stamped 003. Oh he also set the valves.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Snow blower I already bought from him for my other tractor.
