1956 Ford 600 Jubalee

D.Smith Tractor has new distribitor coil points rotor cap condensor and plugs are less than 1 yr.
Tractor will not start and when it was running it would stop running at any time it felt like it. Does anybody have any ideas?

Jim Loveridge Just noticed your post here. There is a forum 5 or 6 down from this one just for Ford and New Holland tractors. Try jumpering across the ignition switch. They have been known to go bad on the earlier 'N' series tractors. Check for fuel flow. Remove the plug at the bottom of the carb. It should fill a pint jar in about 3 minutes.
Bryan Bowlin This tractor has what was called an updraft carburetor, which when new came with a brass seat for the neddel valve that regulates the fuel in the carburetor bowl. In the 1970 s the brass seats became impossible to find and neoprene took it's place. After replacement two problems were recurrent. A. What you describe as the needle sticks in the " rubber" and allows the tractor to run out of fuel to the engine. Or B. When killing the tractor for lunch and trying to recrank one would find all the full that was in the tank is now in the oil pan. The opposite. The needle did not seat and let the fuel flow through thecarb, intake valves and in to oil pan. Cure install electric fuel pump, filter and solenoid valve. Wire the pump in ignition to come on when key is turned on the solinoid valve to open the same and filter to keep trash out of carb. By applying positive pressure the needle don't stick and run out of fuel and when killing engine the solinoid valve kills fuel flow so you don't have to remember to turn off valve under the tank at the fuel bowl. Hopes this helps. I made my cups on grand dads Jubalee. I cranked it at the age of five and ran it down a fifty foot bluff bank. Thankfully dad caught me before piling up in Bowlin Creek.
