I just got my cub cadet original running. I cleaned the points, installed new condenser, and rebuilt the carb. I have the carb set to factory specs 3 turns on high and 1.5 on low, i also tweaked them a little from that.
anyway the tractor is really hard to start cold or warm. always needs choke and lots of cranking. also when mowing or going up hills the engine bogs way down and sometimes stalls. I have adjusted the governor and I have it set at 3600 rpm max. The engine does not smoke, but feels a little low on compression. I never had a worn out engine not smoke. any ideas guys
