Farmall 140 coil runs hot/Carb setting

Don M. The coil on my Farmall 140 gets extremely hot after about 10 minutes and then the engine quits. Any ideas about what might be causing this? Also, what should I adjust the fuel/air mixture needle to? I thought it should be about a turn and a half, but this seemed too lean. I had to open it up some more just to get the tractor to run.Thanks.
John M the coil is bad or you have a 6 volt coil on a 12 volt battery.Adjustments on a carb are whatever it takes to get it to run the best,dont worry about how many turns on this screw or that screw.
RustyFarmall The 1 1/2 turns out setting is the initial setting when doing a rebuild. It is only a starting point, intended to be close enough to allow the engine to run. As John M said, the correct setting is whatever it takes to make the engine run smooth.
