If its the dist out of time the simple way to get it right is to just keep moving the wires around the top of the the dist one hole at a time and then cranking to see if it fires up.

Assuming the dist wires are wrong...bring #1 (closest to the radiator) up to top dead center compression. Pull the plugs and use your thumb over the hole. When air is rushing out, you are on compression. Pull dist cap and align rotor tab with the closest plug tab. Put wires on in firing order. Agree with others, they do not just fall 180 out of time. Need more info to give better help.

I would agree with Old.

Engines do not just get 180 out of time by themselves, please tell the whole story.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
