I have a Farmall B 45 tractor, it ran great last year, this year it does not fire, has had fuel strainer replace and new spark plugs less than 5 years old, new carb less than 5 years old. I am wanting to take the Magento off for service/ and I live in Oklahoma. Was wondering if a good repair place was in Okc or Tulsa that knows what they are doing, I do want a good job. any help or suggestions is welcome.

This was my Grandfather tractor bought in 1945. I have try to keep it up but seems to be hard located repair people in my area.

most times when the points sit in the closed position they create a film on them and this cause no spark. so before getting too excited, clean the pionts and make sure they are gapped at .013 and im sure this will fix the problem. done this many times. use a point file or some emery cloth and even spray them with brake kleen.

I second your advice. A nice fresh piece of 1200 grit paper and a gentle little rub in and out then flip and repeat. Little wash of brake cleaner. Bet you are right. Another thing is to check the little brass blocks inside rhe cap. No green nastiness wanted.

i have a spark plug , with a wire soldered to the base, and a alligator clip on the other end. pull a spark plug wire, place wire onto spark plug and ground wire to engine somewhere. crank engine and observe spark plug for firing. this saves me lots of time and trouble.
