A good, methodical, problem solving system to determine the root cause in any situation is the best procedure. Never just start replacing parts with new, you may or may not stumble upon the true root cause by accident and not ever know it, such as a loose wire. So, how did the tractor run before doing all that? Did it run before doing all that? Often times non-starting/non-running issues are addressed by the owner/operator thinking a 12-volt conversion and/or EI will cure all ailments. If this is the case, you have discovered that that wasn't the cure after all, and problems still exist. The Marvel-Schebler TSX-241Buis perfect for your 2N. The original was the M/S TSX-33 but the 241 model superseded that with the mid-8N production year. Fuel should not run out the carb throat -it isn't set right. If I were to venture to guess, I'd say your problem is in the electronics, but get carb fixed first. Plugs may be fouled now too, pull and dry out with electric charcoal lighter and reuse. There is a ton more good info in our HOW-TO's forum -search Electrical/ Wiring Pictograms by JMOR and download a copy. You will see all the CORRECT ways to wire these old N's. Start tracing wires and verify as you go. Do not rely on what color the wires may be now. Chances are the original cloth-covered/color coded wiring harness has been replaced and whatever is on it now has no correlation to the original color coded harness. Trace and mark as you go. Chances are there is a hiccup somewhere in the wiring.
