The spark plugs we bought we bought from O'Rieleys and the only had the NGK OR NKG well something like that! Spark looked good to me last night! I'm probably gonna end up taking carb apart and clean it! We found that fuel line to carb seemed to be clogged a week ago when we first started having issues with it then I noticed that there was no screen on 90 deg fitting going into carb so thinkin it may have gotten trash built up inside! I do have another question if some one could educate me on how the throttle works cause i noticed some rod runs to an area towards the carb but closer to the front! Just curious what all that is?? Looks like it runs to it then back to carb?? Also I have a wiring diagram for a 12v conversion I got from a parts and repair place and says that I need to run both the ballist and the ceramic resistor it says its for a 9N and 2N but someone told me that I just need to run to the original ballist resistor on back of dash board! Which is correct! This IS a 8N 12v system I'm working on! THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

Well finally this tractor runs again!!!! Figured first thing I would do hater I finally got it to start as stated in my last post when It had no power I would rebuild carb, so I did, and what would you know that did the trick!! This thing runs better now than it did before! I found dirt, carbon buil up and rust in carb! Now only thing I want to know now is that I had gotten a wiring diagram showing how to convert to a 12v (which it has already been converted, just makin sure it was wired right since the coil got Burt up) and on the diagram it shows both the ceramic resistor and ballisti resistor to be wire but in an earlier reply by someone on here said just the ballist! I just wanna make sure I do it right and that on diagram it says for 2N and 9N! Thanks in advance!!!'

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That thing up front is called the GOVERNOR. Throttle control runs to the governor, then from the governor to the butterfly on the carb. Governors compensate for load on the engine so you are not constantly moving the little lever on the dash when you go up a hill or pull something heavy.
