I have a 1949 Ford 8N (front mount distributor). It ran properly two years ago and has not been used since. Two months ago, I tried to start this tractor, but it would not start. I was told that the battery needed to be replaced, so I did that a month ago. The electrical system is still 6V positive ground. Though the engine turns over when I engage the ignition, the tractor will not start.
I have followed the problem from the battery through the starter and past the generator and coil to the distributor. I have voltage getting to the distributor, but I do not have a spark at the plugs. Thus far, I have replaced the battery, coil, distributor cap, rotor button, condensor, spark plug wires, and spark plugs.
What is the next step? Links to photos showing the parts/area to test would help. Thanks!
