I'm back again with the 52 Ford 8N issue. A "mechanic" has the tractor but he's had no better luck than I have. It started and ran well - once for about 15 minutes for him (as it has done for me), then hasn't started again.
Fire to plugs - he says fine blue fire. Compression around 100 on each cyl. Removed exhaust pipe, then manifold to check for obstruction - none. Valves needed some adjustment - done. They go up and down. Carb rebuilt - and tried pouring bit of gas in each cyl. No ignition.
Checked distr timing against marks on flywheel and watched rotor turn.
What are we missing? Apparently something that allows ignition at times and no ignition at times - mostly no ignition.
Thanks for any and all ideas. I'm tired of "trying" this and that. And I'm tired of hearing about the "mechanic" "trying" this and that. Next "trying" plan is to remove head and "look at valves". Why????
