Ferguson t30 has been running fine since being professionally rebuilt 15 years ago . Lately when I start it, the tractor runs fine for 5 or 10 minutes and then sputters and dies. After sitting 5 minutes or so it will start and then do the same thing again. Any ideas on what may be wrong ? Thanks

It's broke. . .
Runs better with the choke pulled out a bit?
Plugged fuel filter in the carb elbow, plugged fuel cap vent, plugged filter in the tank, plugged filter in the fuel bowl, weak coil, weak
condenser, warped manifold are just a few that come to mind.
Fuel flow is how much?
Spark jumps a 1/4 gap?

First thing I would do is when it stops after 5 or so minutes have a wrench in my pocket and immediately unscrew the drain in bottom of float bowl. See if gas runs outs or maybe just drips. That will get you started in correct direction.

I like that idea. Perhaps the float needle has been affected by ethanol fuel. I had this problem with red tipped float valves never with the black ones.
Or carb just needs cleaning.

If you find good fuel flow, put your hand around the coil after the 5 minutes and see if it is hotter than the engine block. If so, I would replace it.
