I took the tank off and blew out the line. I got the fuel system clean and free of rust. Flushed the radiator. The cap and plug wires were off it and I don't know the firing order. I got it off this site. It says 1-2-4-3. So looking at the motor from the right hand side, over by the cap, which is #1 front or back?? And how do they number from there? Looking at the cap, I see #1 is marked, is #2 next to it on the right? Then #3 below it and #4 to the left of that? I think I'm on the right track, it's only a inline 4 cyl. Any help would be appreciated, this project means alot to me. I've been cleaning and degreasing and lubing for 3 weekends straight. I'm ready to crank this thing and put it back to work and throw a paint job on it, the way he would have wanted it.

Rooster, Dewey has it right but to avoid confusion and getting lost the manuals are available for this tractor. I would suggest you buy a set and they will be a big help. If you can't afford them right now (a full set runs around $50 I think) I can fax or e-mail you some of the sections you need. let me know.

When you find #1 TDC Compression.....no matter which post the button is pointing at is going to be #1 on the cap---you see, the Distributor may not be installed in the original position, and THAT does not matter... Then install the rest of the plug wires in order, in the cap...

Ideally everything could be perfect--BUT..!!!

It may mean taking the distrbutor out, and re-setting it's position---a good chance you will have trouble getting it ALL fouled up...!!! Just find the one that is pointed at, when you find #1 TDC, and use it as #1..... No use making it harder than it has to be..!!

Rooster,
Starting at the front, closest to the radiator the cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4. The order that they fire is 1-2-4-3. It also takes two revolutions of the engine for all of the cylinders to fire one time. First you have to determine when #1 is ready to fire. Remove #1 sparkplug, then, with your finger over the hole, rotate the engine until air comes out. This is the compression stroke, at the top of which the #1 sparkplug fires. Also, at the top of this stroke, the timing mark (TDC)is visable, on the flywheel, viewed through the small round hole in the bottom of the bell housing. The rotor should now be pointing to the #1 tower on the distributor cap. Install #1 plug wire there, then clockwise #2-#4-#3. You should be ready to start the engine now. Duey

Thanks Duey. It was getting really frustrating. I'll keep you posted. I hope to get back to it before this weekend. hope to post some pics soon but will need advice. this is my first tractor board but it seems to have helped with my Harley so I figured why not? It may have already paid off. Thanks again Duey.
