Case 400 problem

Report to Moderator

I have restored Case 400. It had been runing great. However, I recently had it a parade where the motor died. It immediately restarted and shortly after died again. It did this one more time and then would not start at all. Ended up being towed by RED-embrassing for a Case man. It is getting gas to the carb-I know that isn't my problem. Where is my problem? I am not much of a mechanic and don't know where I should start trouble-shooting.

Check to see if plugs are firing by putting the wire on one that has been removed and grounding (holding)it against the block. May want to wear gloves to prevent a little electrical jolt.

Ken The first thing to check is the points, they must be clean and gapped correctly. With the switch on and the points closed,pull them open and close them to see if you have spark out of you coil wire.If not then it could be the ciol . Hope this helps you.

could be point or coil as others have said but a bad condenser will drive you batty too. Had very similar thing and a new condenser fixed it. They're available from NAPA.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
