B1 won't stay running

Recommended Posts

My B1 does not stay running. Does any one know where to begin. I rebuilt the carb, I also put in new valves, what would be the proper clearances, I had a guy tell me the ex. should be .019, and the intake .008, does this seem right? Could timing problems be the trouble? What should that be set at? I'm drawing at straws, I'm at a point of just getting rid of it, but I just can't part with it. Any and all info is appretitated. Thank-you, Darryl

Check the kill wire that leads to the points box, if it's shorting out on the points box or engine shrouding you will not stay running,since you just rebuilt the carb remove the hi speed needle and pull out the meter tube again and check it for dirt, did you set the float to specs?

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
