Well I finally got the rest of the field work done but my 2N is back to intermittent stumbling. Did this previously and I disconnected the fuel line at the elbow on the carb and watched the gas flow. Every so often there would be a break or burp in the flow. I went through everything including removing the the sediment bowl assembly from the tank and could find no dirt/problems - even replaced the fuel line. So I rotated the sediment assembly and ran the line into the extra boss on the unit and it straightened out. But now it is back. I am thinking of buying a new sediment bowl assembly. I looked online here and it doesn't seem to provide the manufacturer or where it is made. My current one is only about 3 years old, is Calco brand but it does not say where it is made either. I don't relish just throwing money at it though either. Thoughts?

Check to make sure the vented gas cap is still vented. Loosen or remove it as a test.

Where is the vent located on the tank? I looked over my cap, it is not the original since it specifies diesel. However this is the same cap that has been on it since I got the tractor back in 2003. I inspected the cap and there is a slight rattle to it in the center (sounds a bit like rattle on a pcv valve). Next test is to start it up and when it begins acting up, take the cap off and see what happens!

Worse yet, remember that the gas tank comes off with the hood so you'd have to disassemble it even further.
Removing the gas cap should let you know if you even need to bother with the vent.
