Case 830 stalls

I have a Case 830. Fired it up yesterday and about 15 seconds later it died.(fuel is on). Last time I had this proble it was something blocking fuel at the valve. I checked that and fuel is flowing out the carb as it should.

No spark. Power to the points but voltage is low. After I put the cap back on it fired up and I was about to load the spreader and it died again. Seems to be an electrical problem so i ran a wire from the batttery straight to the coil and still no spark.

Any ideas?

Sounds like the point need some TLC or if you have done a tune up to it in say the last year the condenser if likely to be bad since now days you have a 50/50 chance it is bad. Right out of the box. I have not changed condensers in over a decade. As for points they can be corroded in such a way they work for a minute then don't work

Just a question, has it raised lately, and did the tractor get wet? Bad wires hate damp conditions. My Ford F800 truck needs a new distributor cap every two or three years, even the smallest crack in the cap on a damp day, and it will behave as your said your tractor is. So if it has been wet, take a hair dryer, and dry the wires, and the inside of the cap. Won’t cost you anything, but might show what the problem is , if it has been wet.

Check the points contacts and points gap. If bad get a set of good quality points, not the kit cheapos

Try a different known good condenser

Wire between coil and side of distributor should have near battery voltage with points open and near zero volts with points closed.

All ignition new last year when I rebuilt the engine. But the wiring is old.

Did you check the in-line resistor before the distributor? Should have 12 volts coming into it and about 7.5 to the distributor. They do go bad after time.

Had about 7 volts at the distributor. All was dry inside. Tractor stored inside. Ill try the condenser and recheck the points. Gone for a week now so its just going to sit where it is at. At least I wasn’t in the neighbors yard when it died.
