Hi John,

Here is your explanation. I'm not trying to be a wise-acre just giving you the facts.

We have been working with s19438 to get him back from the squirrel attack his tractor suffered over the winter. All wires were chewed off and no idea of which #1 was on his unmarked distributor cap. Finding TDC was only to get to locate where the rotor wanted #1 wire to go.

It wasn't until this thread (last 1 of 3) that s19438 checked the spark at the plug wires and discovered the only one firing was the one he had plugged into cylinder #4. s19438's first attempt at fixing the problem was to clean the points up. Chances are when the points were put back they were put back so the one lobe worked and the rest not.

We were tackling this one issue at a time. While we need to find TDC for #1 on the cap, now we also need to set the points gap (or figure out why only one lobe is working the points) before we are done in the distributor. He most likely has worn lobes on the shaft but the points can still probably be adjusted so they make & break on all the lobes. It might not be the perfect solution but it should get the tractor running.
