Wow, you guys are quick, thanks for the input.

Glad to hear the oil should be okay, I thought non-detergent oils were best in this case.

Re the starting issue, 6V, front mount distributor, sorry.

New distributor, tractor seems to run just dandy when it starts. BTW, didn't do a compression check but no smoke, no bad engine noises. Sweet.

Think I'll:

1) Change the battery, can't find any punch date sticker and don't have a 6V charger yet but sure can't hurt. Gonna try a red-top Optima.

2) If no cure, will clean the shaft as suggested, Bruce thanks for #36.

3) If no cure, will proceed with other suggestions. Gotta buy manual. Have a great neighbor next door (who had six show tractors) in case I need a hand.

My lane is about 3/8 mile, gonna find a blade and get ready for snow.

Thanks again for all the input. Any more just fire away!

toddo........starter bendix drive must be SQUEEKY CLEAN. I use spray BRAKE cleaner.

2nd thing, yer starter must be GROUNDED. Remove the 8" bolts and pull the starter out about 1/2". Now WIRE BRUSH the H3LL outta the gap. Now re-install the 8" bolts. Simple, eh?

Would it surprize you to learn that Ford spec'd 30wt DETERGENT oil in 1939??? Synthetic oil is also highly detergent. .........oily Dell
