farmall 130 engine kicks. bought this machine, local high school shop had worked on it. i do not know how deep that they plowed, into the tractor. motor is hard to start and runs decent, afterwards. could timing gears be off a tooth or so? i have moved the distributor to adjust the timing, and anything , more than slight movement, causes the engine to not start. any way to check that timing gears are correct, other than a tear down?

You can tell the #1 is coming up on compression stroke by putting your thumb over the spark plug hole as you turn the engine by hand. Then you can see the piston hit top dead center by looking into the spark plug hole. No need to pull the valve cover or look for timing marks.

The distributor ignition can be turned to any position so even if the teeth are out of alignment on the governor, you should still be able to time the engine. It won't be "right" but it will still run the same.

The only way to tell would be to remove the gov and check the dots as thats where the timing marks are for the cam. You can remove the valve cover and #1 plug cause you can see the piston then with piston up on compression check that the valves are both closed. Seeing the dots will be hard even with gov removed but not impossible. Do the test first with plug out and tappet cover off

The dots on the gear are hard to see but if the two dots on the drive gear line up with the dots on the cam gear that would mean that the cam is timed with the crank. I would not think they would have changed the cam gear with the crank but anything is possible when someone has played around with an engine. With a dist the drive gear doesent have to line up cuase the dist can be moved to let the engine start if rotor is pointed correct with piston on TDC. You say moving the dist a little makes a huge difference and thats where a problem can be cause moving dist some will not stop engine from starting. Only when having a Magneto does all the marks need to be correct.Your tractor could have a mag but you say a dist.
