Haven't been around for quite a while.. did you miss me??? (just kidding)
Anyway, I have a 70s vintage Case 444 that I use for plowing my garden and pulling an aerator on a 3 PH.
The engine is a little tired, but always starts right up, and only blows blue smoke when it's warm and put under sudden load.
I've used it twice to aerate, and both times the darn thing started acting fuel starved after about 45 mins to an hour of running. It finally stalls and won't start until I wait for an hour or so.
The fuel pump is original, and leaks, a little so I'll have to change that, but I'm wondering if the carb or fuel line is vapor locking. Was this a common issue with these machines?
What can be done about it.
