I am finding contradictory settings for the SC using the Delco distributor. I understand that it is the same one used on lettered series Farmalls, WD45's, and several JD's. However, I see differing gaps, from .010" to as high as .020" in the "Tune-Up specs" section here, and I think it might be because they are referencing maybe an IHC distributor, then an Autolite, etc. Anyone have a good setting for the points on he Delco distributor when used on the SC? I set them at .020" for now, but would like to know for sure. Also, the hole on the flywheel for #1. Is that the static setting for TDC, or is it used at slow idle with a light, and is there a way to check for proper advance setting using a light? I wonder if I am missing a second mark.

Frank: I do not have an "official" answer but I have a Delco on my Dc and I use .020 seem to run OK. (Then again just about everything with points seems to use .020 e.g. Kohler engines, Military Waterproof distributor in my M37 and even and old Chevelle I had...)
For timing I use the same approach they specify for my VAC. #1 to TDC and turn Dist until points start to open.

The DC is the plow tractor and she has been starting OK even with the cold. (of course like many Case"s she has to warm up for awhile before se is ready to work)

Thanks Paul. She acutally fired up this morning, but I have a nasty bowl leak, sop she needs a needle and seat, and I wonder if it might not need a float. It's early, but at least I know she'll run.

0.020" would be my guess as well. I remember new points coming with a 0.020" feeler guage. I believe new floats are available for that carburetor, should you need one. You might want to get an in-line plastic fuel shut off (ball) valve and NAPA so that you don't have to mess with the valve on the sediment bowl. NAPA also sells a plastic inl-ine fuel filter that works pretty well.
