The seals are shot on the distributor shaft on my 830. Leaks engine oil up to the points, then it dies. It is made by Prestolite. Dealer says that kit is no longer available. I wanted to switch it to electronic anyway. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Rob

There are no seals on the Dist. shaft. At the bottom are 2 bushings, & above them is a needle bearing. Replacing those would help. But, I think you have something else going on, such as too much blow-by. Is the vent tube running across the valve covers fully open?

John, the tube for the vents on the valve covers was dirty, but not plugged. I cleaned it out anyway. The valve train in general was pretty dirty. Lots of caked oil. How can I clean this? There must be something not letting the gases out of the crankcase below. Rob

Today's Featured Article - Uncle Cecil's Super A Lives Again - by Mike Purcell. A week or so out of most of my childhood summers was often spent with my Uncle Cecil and Aunt Sissie in the small East Texas town of Maydelle on their 80 acre farm.

Uncle Cecil was the second owner of this wonderful little tractor, but it was almost as though he had adopted an infant. The original owner was a man from Minnesota who bought her from a local dea ... [Read Article]
