Old Moline Tractor First Start In Many Years - Vice Grip Garage EP43

  • This old Minneapolis Moline M602 tractor has been sitting for a long time. It only makes sense that I go unprepared and try its first start in years. This old tractor has lots of character, and sure gives a guy a big fight! It clearly needed a ignition rebuild, but of course I didn't have all the parts. The updraft carburetor also needs a rebuild. Who do you think will win?

    Had the same problem on a 54 Ford here on the farm with that exact carb. I couldn't get it to stay running for the life of me. I think I had to prime the gas line and I think I adjusted the float and the mixture way richer than they really should be and it runs great now.

    I have an old pay loader with the same engine. Those updraft carbs are a pain. I had to adjust the floats to the point where I had the fuel. I also added a toggle switch to the coil. Ill explain. The points need only six - nine volts to operate. I added the switch to run twelve volts for a cold start. I’ve pulled that carburetor off so many times. 😂. She’s a runner. Great video...
