I have a IH (H) my plow tractor, Was running fine then just quit.

Came back an hour later started right up, ran for 20 minutes then just died. I checked the spark from the Magneto and it was very weak. I replaced the points and rotor still weak?

Any suggestions?

Got the new condenser in and have good spark, rookie mistake, I didn't mark the Mag and may have it turned 180, not sure but it is backfiring badly. Got #1 cyl. to TDC the rotor pointing to #1 on the distributor cap. Wiring on the cap Viewed from sitting on the tractor is #1 (2 o'clock) #3 (4 o'clock) #4 (8 o'clock) #2 (10 o'clock) roughly. What is a go starting position to start with on the Mag to just get it running and then dial it in from there? Need to get this going..its my snow plowing tractor..
Thanks Guys

Have a Farmall C that did that. Found after a season of tillage frustration, it was a piece of the Erie times funny paper. It would get suck int the fuel ⛽️ port and block it , Then released it self and start over .
Donít think thatís your problem ,but never rule any like this out, so open the drain on the carburetor And look 👀

Probably coil, gas cap may not be venting properly. Next time it dies, remove gas cap and see if that helps.

Condenser can do that too.

That is why I use my tester on every one I use. I have found bad ones that way right out of the box.

Ah but many people do not have a tester for that and then even if they do many would not know how to use it. I don't remember the last time I replaced a condenser. Points yes condenser no

Just picked up a new condense, (New to Magnetos) how do I replace it, do I need to take the magneto off? Is there any where I can get instructions?
Thanks

Take the mag off as the condenser goes out the side towards the engine. Watch where the rotor is pointing so you get it on in time again. I center punch the flange & casting where it bolts up to so it will be timed as before.

Replaced the condenser, points and rotor and getting a good spark, but now to time it..It fires up but backfires so I could have the mag 180 degrees off or timing way off.
Unfortunately didn't mark position.
How to get the rotor positioned right ?

Feel the coil immediately after it quits. It will most likely be very hot.As it gets hot it develops an 'open' in the winding. after it cools the open closes and it will run till it gets hot again.A newcoil will cure your problem.

It will not start now, placed a spark tester light from magneto cover to the distributor cap..the light is very weak.

A mag takes a special coil made to fit just that mag and no other mag. This site is likely to list them
