What is the secret in setting the timing on an Allis G? I rotated engine to get #1 cyl. on top dead center, then turned pulley timing mark to 6:00. Installed distributer, rotated ccw until points started to open. Engine makes feeble attempt to start, but backfires. What am I missing? Any help would be appreciated.

Allisbob: Your timing proceedure sounds correct. The only thing I can think of that could cause a problem would be you do not have the engine on DTC compression stroke which would make your timing off 180 degrees or you are using the wrong cylinder as #1. #1 cylinder is the cylinder to the rear of the tractor or the cylinder closest to the timing gears. The firing order on the "G" is 1, 3, 4, 2. Hope this helps. Sincerely, Plant Doctor

Correction: DTC should read TDC.

Are you sure you are coming up on the compression stroke? You may need to rotate one more turn.

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares. As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison. As far as I was aware a fordson was a fordson and it was only through trial an ... [Read Article]
