My Son-in-law in TX. has a 8N Ford. At idle it runs good, increase RPM or load and it starts to cough and quit. By choking it, it seems to
make a differnce but still quits. This is when it is cold or warmed up. It has a new Carb and the governor has been replaced, When it stops
they check fuel bowl by removing bottom screw and it has gas. The way he explains it I think it is a fuel problem but any adjustments doesn't
seem to do any good. Any ideas? It has a new fuel filter.

" It has a new Carb "

That is the likely problem if it's a Chinese clone off of eBay.

Some folks hve good luck with them; most do not. Kinda like winning the Lottery.

Is it a oem Marvel carb or a clone?

You mention a fuel filter. These are gravity feed from tank to carb. Screen on top of sediment bowl up in the tank, screen in sediment bowl, screen on inlet elbow to the carb. This all the filters you need. Most fuel filters are for a pump system and will empty out on acceleration in a gravity flow system. Should be a steel line going from tank valve to carb elbow. Rubber hose that close to the hot exhaust is a fire in the waiting.
I would remove the add on filter and see if that helps. Good luck. Let us know what you find please.

A little more history might help. Was the new carburetor and governor put on because of this problem? It may not be fuel related at all. A weak spark can cause this too. When was the last time it had a tuneup?

I talked to him last night and he paid $40 for the carb so that could be the problem. Thanks for the suggestions.
