Is it an 8N or a 9N? Who cares… won’t start. I haven’t run it in 2 years. I did all the usual stuff:
1-charge battery (6 volt)
2- drain old gas (none)
3-clean spark plugs with wire brush
4-add new gas
5-make sure gas is flowing down to carburetor
-try to start it. No luck.
Checked the plugs and they are dry.
New day with a fresh charge on battery, here’s what I did: drain leftover new gas into gas can. Remove elbow from carburetor, it is clean, put it back on (didn’t need to do this). Unscrew hose clamp holding air tube to carburetor. Unbolt carburetor (two top nuts). Quickly look it over (still connected to the tractor throttle and choke). Carb looks okay, no obvious problem, put it back on. Reattach fuel line from gas tank, add gas into tank, unscrew fuel line at carb again to make sure gas is flowing down good. Once it’s coming down full flow, reattach it to carb. Leave air hose off. Spray starting fluid into carb thru air inlet, try to start, nothing. Do it again, nothing. Do it again, nothing. Spray starting fluid, into air tube from the carb end toward the air filter end, put it on loosly as some starting fluid is dripping out. Set the throttle to about 3/4 full gas, full choke, try to start, and it fires right up and stays running fine for 10 minutes until I shut it off. Start it again a few minutes later with no choke and 1/4 on the gas throttle and it fires right up.
Next time, step 6 will be, disconnect air tube from carb, spray starting fluid into air tube toward air filter, reattach loosly, set throttle at 3/4 and full choke and try to start.
It sure does sound good to hear it running.
