I just finished installing the rebuilt Wisconsin S12D in the 1250. Pulled the spark plug out and spun it several times to get the fuel pumped into the carb. Threw the new plug in and it spun about three times and FIRED right off. This tractor REALLY sounds good and no more smoke screen.

The carb is tuned ok however, at medium to high speed it seems to "roll" up and down a little. How do I tune this carb?

If I get the chance tomorrow I will post a video and maybe get some pictures of the finished project! :D

It is not uncommon, if there is no load on the engine. ......You may be able to "rich-en" the fuel mixture slightly to reduce the surging.

The carb is best adjusted so that under load, the engine accelerates from idle to top speed without "spitting" or smoking black smoke.

Also check the governor settings. If the linkage is inserted into the wrong hole, the engine can "hunt" a little at full throttle. To follow up on Bruce's suggestion, does it also surge under load?
