 My 230 with a 353 did the same thing, couldnt figure it out, filters, checked everything. One of the  fittings on the filter housing had junk built up before and in the 90 degree fitting, after the filter. My mechanic figured it out, havent had trouble since. I would check the fuel supply.

Coxy when you had the popping going on was it all the time or just every once in a while at idle?  I will start it, it starts as usual, idles fine and every once and a while I will here a slight change in the rpm's, not sure how else to describe it but as pop but its just for an instant. then its fine.  I can run it but it seems like once there is any load whether its a steep hill or hook up some wood I will lose power but its not all the time.  I am stumped

I think BargeMonkey hit the nail on the head and your not getting a steady supply of fuel. Could be junk in the tank, bad line, fuel filters. Look for 90 degree fittings as they are usually where dirt hangs up.

Sometimes it can be something simple. Dad had a new injector pump put on one of the tractors a few years back. Went to use it and ran fine then would lose power. Just like not getting fuel. I changed filters, blew out fuel lines checked the tank cut off valve everything.

When you want to shut it down there is a knob you pull out connected to the injector pump that pulls a little lever that cuts off the fuel supply. Both tractors had the same pump so in looking their was a little spring that held the lever in unless you pulled it past the latch point. They had left that spring off. Put the one from the other tractor on it and it was fine. To this day never have replaced it on the other tractor but had no problems.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Back up and running!  It was the dumbest thing that had me stumped.  The cable that goes from the cab to the govenor box to kill the air slipped out a little bit but was still attached so it seemed as if it was working fine.  My uncle and dad were there today and my uncle saw when I pushed the handle back in cable was piece the cable is attached to was hanging up.  So that was the problem.  I would have never seen that by myself.   I still switched out the N45 injector with a N50 so now at least they are all 50's and bough an extra one to have on hand.  Way easier then I though it would be.  Thanks again for all the help, suggestions, etc.  It is much appreciated.  Now all we need is freezing temps and and I can pull some wood.

Glad to hear your running, warm here around Christmas and then maybe getting cold. We need a freeze up bad. Good luck and hope the old girl is pulling wood soon.
In two days from now, tomorrow will be yesterday.

  if the cable goes to the governor box then it shuts the fuel off not the air. there would be a flap on the blower to shut the air off only to be used if its running away
