For me, it was my 4020 gas. I loved the powershift and EVERYTHING else about the tractor EXCEPT that particular gas engine!!!!! Smoked black cruising around the yard half-throttle, started like CRAP, and yes I had the carb redone by a 50-year JD mechanic and yes I had Pertronix ignition put in to try to make that piece of CRAP run and NOTHING I did worked!! And I had the "supposed" GOOD carburetor!!! That dang thing wasn't worth the dynamite to blow it to hell. We've got a late '67 model 706 gas with the 291 engine and it performs, starts, and runs like a diesel! What the heck was wrong with that JD gas motor????
