HELP! SUPER H FARMALL WILL NOT START. I AM GETTING FIRE TO THE PLUGS AND GAS TO CARB. COMPRESSION IS 110LBS. PER CYLINDER. NEW POINTS AND PLUGS. I HAVE MOVED THE DISTRIBUTOR AROUND TRYING TO HELP. TRIED PULLING OFF WITH TRUCK AND IT BACKFIRED A COUPLE OF TIMES. IT WAS RUNNING REAL WEAK AND LOW ON POWER WHEN IT QUIT.

This will get the timing close:
1) Make sure the ignition switch is OFF
2) Open the distributor and check where the rotor is pointing. If you haven't messed with the wires (or you're sure they didn;t get mixed up), turn the fan blade until the rotor points roughly in the direction of #1 (should be able to turn it without removing the plugs)
3) Go around to the carb side of the tractor so you can see the timing pointer. Move the fan so the timing mark on the pully is lined up with the pointer. This is when the spark should fire.
4) Go back to the distributor and check the points. Rotate distributor until the points just open. That's when it will fire.

This should get it to within a few degrees of correct time (depending on how close you can guess when the points break).

Chances are you just have it way out of time, that's easy to do since turning the distributor just a little moves the spark a lot.

Anyone consider the simple answer of bad gas?

There is no timing chain-these are gear driven. I do believe it is either out of time or the spark plug wires are not hooked up correctly. The number one cylinder is the front one. The distributer cap should have a 1 marked on it. Hook that wire to no.1 plug then go in a clockwise direction and hook the wires up to #4,#3and then #2 cylinder spark plugs. If this dosen't help, get back to me.

Slow and low power as you stated usually means lack of fuel, you have gas to carb. check carb. inlet screen filter, then if not o.k. open carb. bowl drain and see if it maintains a steady stream of gas, if it doesn't float needle is not working right. As for back firing if it didn't before you worked on ignition I would say you have crossed plug wires and if distributor was removed could have been installed out of time.
Hope this helps-let us know, like to see everyone up and running.

Sounds like the timing chain jumped a tooth.
