Body of distributor hot??? Sounds like you have something out of place since if it is hot then it is not grounded as it needs to be for things to work. If the body of the distributor is not grounded it will not complete the circuit so yes you would not have spark

That makes sense to me but I do not know where a gasget would go. The distributor mounts flush with the block behind the fan. I have not seen a gasget there. There is one between the coil and the distributor. To eliminate some possible problems I have bypassed the switch and the resistor and to make it hot I go direct from the positive post to the only post on the coil. I have cleaned the inside of the dist. and installed new points and condenser. The only place I can see for a problem is the copper foil from the pigtail screw to the points. I don't think I can replace that.

"To eliminate some possible problems I have bypassed the switch and the resistor and to make it hot I go direct from the positive post to the only post on the coil." I have already pointed this out earlier, but apparently it didn't 'take'. You are saying that + on battery is chassis ground, then you say you get 'hot' directly from battery +. Can't be!!!

That strip is know to break and can be replaced if you can find one. I have seen them replaced with a piece of wire etc. If testing it off the tractor you have to ground the body of it so one lead goes to the coil top and the other to the body of the distributor so as to bench test

I have done as you suggested and then rotated the tang which rotates the rotor and the reading remains constant on the multimeter. The repair shop used a plug wire to see the spark jump when it was on the bench but the body was not grounded. I will go try again but am sure it is as I have described.
I had it on the bench with the power from a 6 volt charger and using a multimeter to detect leakage. The points closed gave a reading of 12 volts and point open 6volts. So there is leakage to groung somewhere. the ground point was the distributor body.

Check that where the wire goes on the points there is not a ground there. Common area for a short to happen at

I finally located the short. The pigtail from the coil was touching the clip ring that holds the distributor plate. I had to bend the pigtail just a fraction and it fired right off. The clip ring can only fit one way so it could not be moved. Thanks to all for your help. I am back to work. If I just had a few more horse power, I would be in good shape.

Thanks
