The tractor has a late series engine with electric ignition. The key switch is brand new from Deere, it also has a new coil and the battery is in good shape.

The test procedure for the electronic trigger is available on the net in several places. I think you just attach a voltmeter to the coil and ground,then crank the engine by hand. The reading should be 12v or so but drop to about 1 volt when the trigger/spark event occurs.

If the trigger is bad, you have to remove the engine to get the flywheel off as the trigger is hidden back there.

If you have points make sure they're open then with your ignition switch in the on position use a volt meter or test lite to see if your have battery voltage on both small terminals. Also rub the points with some 320 wet or dry until they're shiny. Also make sure your points are set correctly & opening and closing and your rubbing block on your points isn't worn off. Hal
