My 2, the experts will be along shortly to correct me -
Popping in the exhaust is a burnt valve.
If you turn the lights on and does it charge more?
Ya don't want it to charge too much.....

I've ruled out a burnt valve as the compression on all cylinders is about 100-105 lbs. Points are right on as far as I know. Timing may be off a tad. I'll have to check on that.
I'll do another compression test to be sure.
Amp gauge is original as far as I know. Thanks.

Our 9N sounded EXACTLY like that and grandpa said burnt valve, ya never questioned grandpa. When we tore it down, sure enough-burnt valve. Took care of the popping.
Our 9N didn't have headlights so there was no real draw on the battery, only starting it. Had the genny set low so's we didn't cook the battery.
