ive got a 14hp single k block engine on my plow tractor its totally stock.
my problem is this it just started this year it runs great til it get warmed up I can plow for about an hour before it starts. at that point while im pushing the engine will start to spit and sputter like its loading up, I let up on the hdryostat lever and it sits there for prob 15-20 sec doing this then it smooths out on its own and I can continue to plow but from then on it will just keep doing this to me til I shut it down and it let it cool off then we start the process all over again. so far I have changed coil, condenser, and points with no change. any help would be great thanks

Have struck this problem with a K series. Turned out to be a sticking valve due to build up on the valve stem. Might be worth a check.

If it has blades I'm not interested.

THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT, IT MAY BE A STICKING VALVE.
