Ok folks, I have an Oliver 1850 gasser that runs rough. It idles
pretty choppy and don't run smooth. When I first got the old girl
she ran smooth as new ( last season). Now it just plain runs
rough. Instead of a smooth idle it'll puff a little and runs rough.
Seems like a carb problem but with some adjustments seems
worse. Has recent plugs and wires. Anybody know
approximate carb settings? Thanks.

points, rotor, and cap. your carb probably hasn't went out of adjustment since last season.

Which carburetor? The Aluminum M-S or the cast iron Zenith?

You probably simply have a slug of water in your gas. Drain your old fuel and add a couple of gallons of fresh. Then clean your sediment bowl if equipped and add a bottle of gas dryer. Take the tractor for a cruise around the pasture. If you had water in the gas this should make it run normal.

Ethanol fuel only has a shelf live of maybe 3 months under ideal conditions. On top that, it is a water sponge, it will absorb 50 tp 60 times more water than 100% pure gas.

Don't take too many things apart at once. You just don't want to fix anything that doesn't need it.

Good luck!
