Having issues with starting WD with the starter. The tractor is 12 volt with a magneto. The tractor only wants to pop when using the starter. Tractor starts fine when pull started. It also starts good after the tractor is warmed up. Carb has been rebuilt, new battery and cables, new plugs and wires, new mag cap and rotor.

A WD with 12 V and a Magneto.....

With that Voltage..it IS at idle speed before it even has a chance to fire..!!

Should fire right up, if it will run at all..!!

Are you real sure it has a Mag..??

Another consideration would be to check compression when spinning over with the starter.

Not ruling out the mag but a possibility that comes to mind.

We had the same issues in the 50s- WC and a C. Pull start three feet and it"s running. Mag needed rebuilding.

Need to work on the magneto. Make sure the impulse clicks. May have a broken spring.

You can put in all the new parts you want but if you do not know where the problem is first you can cause more problems. Are the new plug wires the true copper wire plug wires or the ones made for a car or truck which will not work on a tractor??? What does you spark look like?? It needs to be a blue/white in color and jump a 1/4 inch gap or more.

The plug wires are the true copper wire plug. There is good blue spark that jumps when a plug is removed and grounded on frame.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
