I have been having the same problem with my m, only I get spark, then loose it, starts up fine for a few days, Then nothing, no spark, I have replaced the coil, plugs condenser, points, now I'm wondering if I have a short someplace, maybe I should just start replacing the wires....Switch maybe?
Any thoughts?
Open to any ideas

I'd check the coil with a volt meter to make sure that it is getting 6 volts with the switch on. " I get spark, then loose it" makes me wonder if the ignition switch is good and that all connections between the battery and the coil then on to the distributer are clean and making good contact.

Does the starter turn the motor over even if the tractor doesn"t start?

Yes, The engine turns over but will not start. The inline fuse is good also. Thanks for all of the the help.
