Can't think it's anything but a fuel problem since choking it got it to run long enough to get back to the house!

Took the tank off today, still had some trash in the tank. Washed the tank out, new fuel filter & all new lines. Haven't had time to try it yet, when I fill it, I'll double dose with Seafoam. ~~ grnspot

I had the tank off mine and blew the screen out with air, then rinsed the tank until I got it real clean. In 30 years a lot of debris can get into the tank while filling. Hopefully you have it fixed. The fact that your problem occurs when the tractor is hot may indicate another problem.

Not always when hot. Just the only time I've had it happen here.

Also found a pretty tight bend in the fuel line, re-routed the new line to avoid problems. ~~ grnspot

It's a long ways from the tank to the engine on these things. When I first got mine I went to drain the tank of the small amount of fuel in it. It took forever to get a couple of quarts of fuel out. I think the culprit in my case was the tank screen. I don't really like the way the fuel line comes out of the frame by the motor mount and then to the fuel pump. On mine at least, it is a tight fit between the frame and motor mount bracket. I don't like to see a fuel line anywhere where it will be rubbing against a moving part. I replaced all the lines. The old ones looked OK but felt kinda soft so they came out. I'm about ready to run mine again having fixed another broken motor mount and a bunch of other small stuff.

Had much of a chance to 'play' with it more, grnspot? Hope it's working okay for you.

Haven't had it out of the shop much, too hot & too many Dr.'s appointments (4 in the last week, all but one was routine yearly checkups, just all hit at one time)! Did get the rear lift bar made & the sleeve hitch put on (off the 112). Also got the brackets modified so the "tractor trunk" will fit, mostly used for parades ( the wife will drive this one some). Did some polishing on the hood & side panels, cleaned up pretty good for a 31 year old tractor! Still need to polish the fenderdeck. I'll get some fresh pics when it cools off some, 102 out there today! ~~ grnspot

I've been doing some cleanup with polishing compound lately. Original owner had waxed it, which indicates a well cared for tractor. HPIM2165 - Copy.JPG

Also made a lift bar & installed the sleeve hitch.

Looking good there, grnspot. I'm sure your wife will be happy to drive it. I will be going to check out a small JD before too long. Don't know much as yet. Will need some TLC. May have to sell something, though. I'm getting GT poor!

That cleaned up really nice!! I have a sleeve hitch for mine as well. It is a home built one by the looks of it. Functional but a bit rough. I was wondering if it should be painted green or black. I guess it should be black like the frame.

Changed the wheels & tires from the 74-112 to the 314 today. I prefer the tri-ribs & lugs for the way I'll use the tractor.

Then put it to work on water duty this afternoon, hydro works much better than a gear drive for creeping around plants at low speed while watering! HPIM2168.JPG ~~ grnspot

That looks really good with the new tires. I was surprised by how much power the hydro had on my 314. It seems much more responsive at low engine RPM's than the newer hydros JD uses in it's GT's. You don't need to have the engine revving at 3600 to get good power. It sounds like you are happy with it.
