No spark on any plug,new plugs,new points,(gaped to specs)New condensor,new rotor,new plug wires. Did not replace coil or distributor cap. Distributor cap looked ok.(6-volt sys.,positive ground)Kill switch wire goes to neg. terminal on coil.positive terminal on coil goes to distributor terminal.I read continuity across coil,also read 6-volts on both sides. I'm new at this tractor rebuilding thing but am enjoying leaning. Wonder why there is no spark? Could new condensor be bad? How do ya'll check a coil or condensor? Can anybody help!!! Thanks! Dale in MS

Take the distributor cap off, then the rotor off, then the point cover. check the voltage with the points open. Set your meter to ohms and make sure that the other side of the points go to ground. then crank the engine over and watch for spark at the points. If you have voltage at the points and the stationary side of the points are properly grounded and the points are clean you will have spark at the points. If after you put the cover on and put the rotor back on and then the distributor cap you still have no sign of spark your rotor is bad or you forgot to put it in. I never saw a bad distributor cap that you couldn't get a little spark from at least some of the wires. Many people have gone nuts trying to figure out why they didn't have spark only to find the rotor on top of the hood or forgot to put the center coil wire back in.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
