Took my G to a local show today. Started and ran good loading and unloading it. Went to put it in the parade and it would not start. Fire at points. Coil wire to ground is about the same intensity as point spark. Bad condenser-coil??? Any help very much appreciated. Thanks, Jack

Jack, Check fuel delivery. Maybe something in the fuel line or tank. Pull a plug and see if it's wet with fuel, if it is, then it may be a ignition problem, and you may be on the right track. Crank the engine a little and see if you get and arch from the high tension tower where the coil wire plugs in to one of the primary or secondary studs on the coil. Sometimes a coil will drop without warning. Also, inspect the point gap, and inspect the cap for a crack. A few easy things first. It's probably something dumb. Good Luck! Let us know what ya find....

Thanks for the reply Steve. Took a used condensor with me today that I found in my toolbox. Tried starting it as it was-no go. Put the used condensor in (out of a Wisconson 2 cyl with mag.) and it started and ran but rough. Did get it home so will try more things. Coil is putting out with a good spark that "snaps". Can pull individual plug wires and a couple don't make a lot of difference so will start with new plugs. This tractor has been redone on the wiring and it is not something I am familiar with. I have always had a problem with it running the battery down if I don't pull a cable off when I shut it down for a period of time. Have a drain somewhere. Will have more time Monday and maybe can post a pic of the switch and (cutout I think). Jack

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]
