assuming it runs and you just want to fine tune or check it--- there is a 1 inch diameater hole on the left side of the tractor flywheel housing in the middle. look thru here and you can see the flywheel. If you have a timing light, connect it to the front cylinder (#1) and shine thru the timing hole while running. you should see the "F" fire mark. loosen the magneto holding bolts 1 turn and turn a couple degrees one way or the other to get the "F" mare centered in the hole.
----- if it is not running now, turn the motor over by hand slowly and have someone look into the 1 inch timing hole. stop at the "TDC" top dead center mark. during this time have the number 1 spark plug out and put your thumb over the hole nad make sure the piston is coming up on compression and not the ehxaust stroke. When the piston is at top dead center, look insode the mag cap and see that the "arm" on the center shaft is pointing at the #1 plug wire on the cap (this gets you close.) Then start tractor and do the timing light trick mentioned above.

On our first cosmetic restoration, not having a manual, we carefully marked the wires, taped the magneto in the position it came off, and were careful not to turn the engine over while we had these components off. We thought we could get by with this since the engine ran perfectly and would not need any internal work. After the cleanup and painting was done, we began reassembly and finally came to t ...
