What does the spark look like?? You need a blue/white spark that will jump a 1/ inch gap or more or it will not run as it should. Valves can not be the problem if the compression is good unless they are so loose they do not open up as they should but that is not likely.

Good points all, sorry I can"t come back with direct answers. Like I said not my tractor nor the guy doing the fixing so I am floating ideas for when he comes back from vacation. I can only assume he had good solid spark but the coil rings a bell. He has only owned diesels for many years so maybe just maybe that one escaped him. Thanks for the ideas.

I just talked to Jim and he said they did the whole electrical thing right down to the condenser and it was tossing fat blue sparks and he even swapped out a coil from a currently running car he had. The Comps were between 90 to 105 . The IH mechanic told him it should run ok with those values just like the slightly loose distributor. So I guess unless the carb is totally buggered inside someplace it's the valves. The IH mechanic hot tanked and rebuilt the carb as I described earlier and of course it still runs the same either way.

all it takes is for one passage in the carb to be plugged and without finding it you can swear you need a new tractor. carbs just dont buggar up, they are fixable. the compression is a bit low but i would say should not be a problem to get this tractor to move. no mension of valve adjustment? i can give you a good example i run into. nieghbour had a 460 gas he was selling on auction. i offered the son 1600.00. no not enough, he wanted 2500.00. i said ok i will wait for the auction. then auction day tractor up... wont start, they had carb off and apart and boosting and no go. so auctioneer says sell as is. so ok i buy it for 700.00 and pulled it home with truck. then decided to check the main needle valve on carb and it was pretty much shut. opened it up and tractor started right up , so goes to show that need some one with experience and nohow on these things. and if he would have taken 1600.00 he would have been ahead.
