thnks for all the info but believe I have found the problem, the gear that should have a and c on it fits on a shaft with a bearing that fits in the end cap. the bearing is spinning inside cap and moves back and forth believe it's being held to far away from end cap cover not allowing spark. try to check it this weekend and post thanks again for all the help

Bushing loose in the cap is a common problem. It can be fixed with jbweld or loctite.

I have timed several FM type J mags with marks.

Position the rotor so it is pointing just under the timing lug. Turn the small gear so the filed tooth is pointing up. Then put the cap on.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace.
