Jubilee Runs then quits

M Pierson I've got a Golden Jubilee that in the last few days will run for about an hour, then will sputter and quit, as if it's out of fuel. If I let it rest for a few minutes, it will run for a bit and then repeat the scenario.
Itseems to be worse when I'm going uphill. Any ideas?

Bob G I would pull the drain plug from bottom of carb and check the fuel flow. An 8n will fill a pint jar in about 2 to 3 minutes. assume Jub will flow the same. If the flow stars out good and then starts just barely flowing, some thing is plugged. If fuel flow is good then I would check for spark to the plugs just as quick as you can when it dies.
Good luck

M Pierson Thanks Bob- I'll check that out- my initial thought was possibly some sediment clogging the bottom of the fuel tank, but wanted to put the question out there before i take off the sediment bowl and drain the tank- I'll check the carb drain route first.

Jim Loveridge M Pierson, I had exactly the same symptoms with my '54 NAA a few years ago. It cleared up when I put on a new coil. Don't go and throw money at yours though. When it starts acting up, feel the coil to see if it is hot, or check for a good strong blue spark by holding the wire that goes into the top of the distributor cap about a 1/4 inch from the block and crank it over with the key on.
John A I have an 8-N and it did the same thing and it was the coil also.Been working great for years.
