720 skipping when hot

Recommended Posts


I'm not sure what to tell ya , mine started acting up and I changed both and reset points and timing and cured it. Also replaced head gaskets cause mine was leaking, I planed the heads and haven't had a issue since. I would have thought someone else would had chimed in by now with there remedy. this is just what worked for me. just a question, do you have all the shielding on tractor ? you may want to check the coil to.

I would replace the intake and exhaust gaskets. It is quite possible you have a vacuum leak when it gets hot. I had one that only ran on 1 cylinder because of a vacuum leak.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
