Starving for gas. Fuel restriction in tank, outlet,line or in carb. Probably junk in bottom of tank.

I would start by pulling the carb drain plug and make sure you have a good steady flow of gas that will fill a pint jar in under 3 minutes. If you have that at the drain plug you carb needs to be rebuilt/cleaned up. If you do not have that then work your way back to find where the flow gets slowed down. If you cannot find a flow problem then the float maybe sticking

Finally got out to the farm, today....tested the flow, and it is real good...Took the carb off and brought it home. The float has gas in it, but I can't tell how it got in, not a damp spot on it. It has been brazed a couple of times, tho'. The float needle seems to be okay.there is a lot of play in the throttle shaft...

I would replace the float. If it's been repaired several times. The extra solder makes it too heavy.
If you shop the online parts houses. You should be able to find a kit with a new throttle shaft. If you need bushings you can make your own from K&S brass tubing available from many hobby shops.

To finish the story. I bought a used carburetor from a man that parts Allis tractors, and a rebuild kit from another vendor. I had my local mechanic rebuild it. He had to make the throttle shaft, because none could be found. He bushed the carburetor body, cleaned it thoroughly, reassembled it, and gave it back to me last Wednesday, I put it on the tractor this afternoon, and after about 8 cranks, it started and ran beautifully. I went up and down the road (about a mile), shut the tractor off with the kill switch, and restarted the tractor on the 3rd crank. Then I shut it off by shutting off the gas and letting it run dry....I am really happy.....

Just to go in a little deeper, the man that rebuilt my carburetor said that both jets were clogged......

Good to know it was carb related. I had a lot of carb problems on one of my WDs, but ultimately found it was a rusty gas tank that was causing my woes. So if your problem reoccurs one of these days, you may need to look further upstream.
