These old tractors have different personalities. Unless you have done a factory specifications rebuild, you have an tractor age variablity.
Compression, fuel delivery, spark, timing, wiring etc all have a roll.
Why start changing parts unless it is obvious that they are bad?
Cold, my '51 and'52 8Ns and my NAA Jubilee all start by opening the throttle about 25%, no choke, and hit the start button. Each will start on the 2nd compression stroke and then I immediately pull the choke out, then feather it back in while listening to the engine. Each of these tractors are original 6 volt systems.
I have a 40 9N that I need to adjust the throttle. It has no affect on the carburetor until I move the lever to the halfway point.
How are all your systems?
