Hi,

I am wondering if anybody knows a source for NOS ignition parts for the letter series Farmalls. I've had mixed results from newly manufactured stock. I have a 53 SA and a 49 M. The A could use some new points.

I too have good luck with O'reilly or Autozone. But I have learned the hard way to bring my old parts to compare. It is a 30 mile round trip to get those parts. Last year I had to get points/condenser for engine in my air compressor which is not an IH motor {Ford 300 CI, 6 cyl}. He had two choices for condenser and I guessed wrong. Put a used one in and it works fine. The one I ended up with did not fit, was to long. Point is if you take your old parts to compare you won't have to go back again. Good luck on your mags. Regards, John.

Thanks for the helpful suggestions. I'll look into these options. I have NAPA and O'Reilly near by. My mistake was probably from ordering online, at least if I buy locally and have fit problems or early failure, I can easily go back to the source.

No idea of NOS ignition parts but for the mag on my BN I was able to get everything from local NAPA dealer and only had to wait overnight for them to get those parts from the warehouse in the city.

Replaced Cap, rotor, points, condenser and the coil. This is the second time going through the mag last time had to have been about 25 years earlier, that time the parts also came from NAPA dealer.

I have been using kits from A&I for the last ten years. I've never had a problem with the IH parts.

I would recommend the Brillman Company as well. They specialize in electrical components.

When I need ignition parts I go to my local O'Reilly's and get point plugs cap rotor and never had any problem with there parts. That is also where I get carb kits and plug wires and oil etc.

The problems I had were that in one case the fit was not correct. In another case the tab that rides on the cam broke clean off after only a few hours of use. I may look around online. It seems like the original equipment just fit and lasted better.

I've never had issues with new points - maybe others have. Condensers seem to be a different problem. When my point have issues I have been filling back to smooth again. Can't do that forever but it does get more mileage out of them.
