WD 45 question

My brother is having a problem with his WD45. Cylinder #3 keeps fouling the plug. He can pull the wire from the cap and get a 3/8" spark and it will smooth out and run pretty good. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance

PLUG FOULING IS USUALLY CAUSED BY A LOT OF PEOPLE WATCHING YOU AT A PARADE OR WHILE SHOWING OFF YOUR TRACTOR--USUALLY YOU CAN FIX THIS WITHOUT A WRENCH FASTER THAN IT TAKES TO GET THE RED OUT OF YOUR FACE--PULL PLUG WIRE OFF THE NO. 3 AND LET IT HANG LOOSE--SO IT JUMPS THE SPARK TO THE PLUG--(LET THE RUBBER BOOT HOLD IT ON THE PLUG AND JUMP INSIDE THE BOOT)MANY TIMES IT WILL CLEAN THE PLUG UP TILL YOUR NEXT PARADE, OR TILL YOU GET A CHANCE TO CHANGE IT. MANY OLD FARMERS USED THIS METHOD TILL THEY COULD AFFORD A NEW PLUG. NO EXAGGERATION IN THE WORD AFFORD.

Duey has a good plan, you might add to it when changing the plugs, check the compression to see if it is even. If the compression is even, probably there isn't a problem with the engine, and his "tune up" will work for you.

First thing is to lose the Champion plugs if that's what's in it. Then put it on a good load and blow some carbon out of it. If you get running smooth then adjust the carb main jet. That's what it took to fix a friends 45 that was just used to putter around at slow engine RPMs and had the carb set too rich. Duey

It's very interesting to come onto this forum and find that the ole Allis tractors have trouble with the Champions. I race cars and when I first started, I was running Champions and with the compression I was running (13:1 or so), I was blowing the ceramic out of the steel housing (it made an awful noise). I also have a WD-45 that I play around with. I never could get it to run right, but it has champion plugs... HMMMM. That might be part of it, but I think it has other demons, as well.

Duey, That isn't the first ime I've seen Champion plugs slammed on an allis forum, what is the right ticket? Also, what would be a good start for setting the tw needles on the 45's carb?

Well Xavier,
After spending hard earned money on champion plugs and then having a problem with the engine missing almost from the start and then replacing the plugs with new champions and again having problems, I replaced them with ACs and had no more problems. After that when I go to buy new plugs, they are never champions. And when someone else has plug problems and I find they are champions---quess what fixes the problem---not champions!!!
Turn the needles out 1 1/2---to 2 turns to start. Then find a happy medium between rich and lean---power at wide open throttle and idle at idle speed. Duey

I see another Iowan likes Champion plugs as much as I do.
