Ok so we got the tractor to run. But it won't rev up? What's up with that?

I am going to be puting a carb kit in it also. Just because it was so gummed up (but cleaned befor trying to run)and I already have a kit.

Anyways thanks for the help guys. I love this site for that...

While rebuilding the carb, replace the fuel lines and fuel filter too. Make sure the tank is clean, Good Luck, Rick

Is all the throttle cable and governor linkage hooked up correctly ? Is the butterfly open all the way with engine off and throttle lever set on full speed ?

Will it rev up more if you add a little choke?

Works just fine on starting fluid but that's right down the barrel of the carb. So I was thinking maybe something is still gummed up. I did clean the tank and new fuel line and fittings. It has a sediment bowl and that is clean.


I cleaned the tank with nails and the case 220. Hooked the tank to one of the rear wheels and mowed my mom and dad's lawn.

Perhaps start using Berrymans B-12 in the fuel.

 

I've had outstanding results using Berrymans fuel additive. On occasion I also purchase 100LL (100 octane low lead - ethanol free) gas at a local airport.

 

Small engine mechanics love ethanol, keeps them in the money making repairs.
