Super A magneto

Guys, I have a problem with the magneto on my super A. I restored this tractor last summer and everything was working great. Fired up first time every time. I then hauled the tractor back to my place in Kentucky and on the third day of travel, the tractor got soaked by a huge rainstorm. I did take preventative measures by covering the exhaust pipe with duct tape to prevent water from coming down it. Anyway, when I got the trator to Kentucky, it fired up fine and I drove it in the barn, went back 2 days later and it would not start. It is getting fuel and the spark is weak at best. It does have new pligs and wires. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

Take a hair dryer and dry up any moisture after removing the cap. Hal

It is probably the points, condenser or coil. clean the points and put on a new condenser. I"ve had problems with weak condensers before that make the mag have a weak spark. If not that, try the coil and make sure the magnet has good strength. Andy.

water in the distributor is my guess. Take it off, can probly leave the wires attatched, and either dry it with a hair dryer or let it dry out my itself.

Check/clean your points. You probably get the points wet and now they aren't doing as they should. Also check to make sure the cap and rotor are clean/dry

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
