After losing spark I assumed that it was in the mag...and thanks to help from you all i checked the points and found the plastic plug was loose where the coil/condenser wires /and points spring are held down...easy fix. So I thought. New points and such didn't work so I brought the mag inside to change the coil...but after adjusting the points once more I bench tested the mag and got spark before replacing the coil. When I put the mag back on the C i cleaned up around the gov and spotted a crack buried under the grease.a new shiney crack! Now I have a busted up cover, gov gear and misc pcs that didn't fall into the block. Is this a common problem or am I just a lucky one? And, anyone have a reasonable cure. i know I won't be tackling this fixit till warmer weather as I'll have to be sure to remove the debris from the block-which means quite a bit of tear down.

And, thanks for any ideas and help. Best Wishes.

Your just Lucky! Have you taken the cover off to see if the gear caused the damage or the govener bearing. If the gear didn't fly apart there should not be any thing to speek of in the pan. I have three of the B and C engines tore down in my shop and when you get ready to work on it I can walk you through it here, Email, or by phone. If you can't find parts VanCamp has the in Fort Wayne.

Dick L. thankyou for the offer of help and may contact you when I've located parts...The gear broke and so did the inspection cover from flying pcs. So, I've got some part searching to do.

Yep, you can get by if you jack the front up and put blooks or a jack stand under the front of the tourque tube. then it's easy to remove the front end, grill, radiator, fan, water pump, crank shaft pully, oil pan, ect. You then have to take off the front plate or timing gear cover, it is just a flat plate held on by three bolts after the govener cover and the front steering post is off. It realy wont be that bad, it can be done in a half of a day after you have all the parts. I have taken the pan off my C to check the rods, on the trailer, an hour before I pulled out to go to a pulling contest. On the parts, you might have lost the cam gear also. Dick

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
