Customer Question

I have a Massey Ferguson model 35 that starts and runs for a few minutes and then quits. I have replaced the coil and checked the carburetor but it all seems to be fine. It loses power and I can keep it running at idle with occasional pulls on the choke but finally dies and after cooling for half hour or so, it will start and run fine again.
JA: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?
Customer: Model MF 35. Serial Number SGM 212869. Not sure of the year model but 1964 or 65.
JA: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. That is all for now.
