200 Runs!

I parked my 200 after the peas and corn were laid by and ran it very little. About Thanksgiving time last fall I needed to get it going to move some limbs and some other chores and I wanted to get the cultivator tool bars off for painting. It would not even try to start . . . no fire. You guys told me to clean the points and I put it on the round-to-it list. It came up today. I charged up the battery and used a very fine grit sand paper just lightly to file the points. (I haven"t seen my points file in years.) The first time I filed I checked the amp meter when I switched it on and there was a definite show of "discharge" which let me know it was clearly a points issue. Using the starter I rolled it over a few times and it was back to no discharge. I repeated the process until it sparked on every break. Put the distributer cap back on and it fired right up. Thanks for the help. If I had not been so stubborn I would not have a new coil on the tractor with an old coil now in storage that is just fine.

OLD says to wipe the contact surfaces with a piece of cardboard, I use a dollar bill, works great. $100 dollar bill works better, but I don't have one.

Just a tip here. When you sand the points the next thing you should do is use a piece of card board like the flap of a box points etc come in. Sand paper or emery cloth can leave stuff behind that does not conduct electricity and make the point not work. By the way You can bu ya points file at O'Reilly's for around a buck
