So, I'm assuming this is a carb issue..

My ht20 first, if I fill my fuel tank past carb height, it flows out. Assuming this is a needle and seat or float issue.

Most importantly, when starting, it needs to turn over much longer than what it should to fire. I would say, 10 seconds minimum. Unless the tractor was just running. Ambiant temp doesn't change this. I think this is also a carb issue?

Thanks in advance for the help as always

I would say your fuel issue sounds to be the float or needle and seat sticking/ faulty.

 

Hard starting could be a number of issues, air leak, valves,fuel pump faulty.

Well. Now she starts up, runs a minute than dies. Seems to be running out of fuel... I think my fuel pump is shot.

I can see it bringing air into the line between carb and pump.

Any suggestions on temporarily make it the gaskets swell to get by until a get a new pump?

Thanks!

My 1250 was the same way.  If fuel was above carb, it would start.  replaced the carb and it solved the problem.  You can also by-pass the pump to see if it will run with fuel higher than the carb.

Tried by passing pump. No success. I think I have a carb issue and pump issue.

Parts are on the way.. hopefully we don't get to much snow in the next week.
