I finally got my Ferguson TO20 running again. It has been setting for about 6 or 8 years. It had been converted to a 12 volt but it still had the 6 volt starter, which blew up. I didn't really need it so I let it set. Last year got the starter replaced and then it wouldn't start. Finally I put in a new 12 volt coil (with proper polarity), corrected the firing order and took off the carb and cleaned good with carb cleaner. A little starting fluid and it started and ran great. I let it run for a while to charge the battery and to see that it didn't over heat. Shut it off and while gathering my tools up noticed that gas was pouring out of the carb (I have the air cleaner disconnected). I had a new carb, installed it and now it runs great (except the governor doesn't work so I can go faster). I still need to get a new tube put in the rear left tire and then I can drive it. Not sure what I will do with it. Next I need to get to work on the 4041 and get it going.
Nice to get one more running. My IH350 had a carb problem a few years ago. I drove it to a friend to help with roofing. As it sat, gas poured out. Turns out that somehow gas siphoned up (it's an updraft carb) and filled the cylinders to the point that it ran out the exhaust manifold. None in the oil, was able to pull the plugs and turn it over to empty. Put it back together and no more problem. Strange things happen in the heat.
