Hi all. Well I didn't get to work on my C as long as I would have liked, and I didn't get it started. I have two questions, how do you get the gears lined up in the mag? I don't see any timing marks in there or any beveled teeth. and also I have two marks on my flywheel, one says FIRE and you turn the engine over alittle more and another mark says ENTER, What is this mark for? When I get home tomorrow I will fool around with it some more. Thanks, TractorMike

Duey and John have it spelled out correct. also the ENTER mark is actually marked CENTER for "Top Dead Center" of the piston.

Tractor Mike,
I e-mailed you photos of the correct position of the mag gears and other instructions for timing the mag. When you crank the engine over, the first mark in the timing hole is the full advance fire mark used for timing the ignition. The next mark is the "Top Dead Center" mark used to assemble the engine and time and adjust the valves. Duey

Mike; When setting the timing on Bs,Cs, etc., I bring #1 piston to top dead center, be sure both valves are closed or you will be 180 degrees out, and match the teeth on the mag with the rotor aligned with #1 plug wire tower on the cap. It's the low tech way I know, but, works for me. The engine should start with timimg at Top Dead Center. Once running I correct timing with a timing light and turning the magneto to bring timing to spec. Hope this helps.

John W.

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]
