View Full Version : International Tractor Model 424

I have an International Tractor Model 424- it will start and run ok for just a few seconds, then it dies. I have replaced the ignition coil, distributor cap and wires & cleaned the fuel pump.
Would a weak battery cause this?? Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks- Rod

hay, i had the same problem. would run then quit.
1)checked fuel at carb. (plenty) as long as gas was in bowl.
2)changed fuel filter
3)unhook fuel line at filter and see flow from tank. (mine was slow.)
with air tank and rubber tip blow gun, blew air from filter back into fuel tank. This cleared line of trash.
flow good, also with fuel bowl and filter off, blew air into filter housing. Flow was good.
note: bowl did not refill with fuel until fuel pump turned on.
