Just overhauled the gas engine,boy was that expensive.When I start it it won't fire till I let off the starter button it acts like it don't get proper voltage to the points while the starter is engaged. So I put a direct wire to the coil from the battery to see what happened and it did the same thing after it starts it runs fine and charges like it should sure got me scratching my head looking for ideas.

another thing you might look at is the ignition resistor. If it is burned out, it will do what you say, fire as long as the starter is held in then quit when you shut off the starter motor. Had that happen to me on an old GMC truck a long time ago. WHen you push in the starter it shunts out the resistor and gives full voltage to the coil, but when you let off on the starter, it switches the resistor back in, so if the resistor is burned out, it shuts off the ignition. Not sure if the IH is wired that way, but a lot of vehicles are so it might pay to check it out.
my 2 cents, hope this helps and good luck

I assume you did all the standard stuff-points,condenser,wires.Try checking your battery connections.Scrape them good and clean and try it again.If that doesn't do it,maybe the coil is bad.Can you sub another coil? Check the wiring on your ignition switch and between the coil and distributor for bad connections or corrosion.That's all I can think of.Hope it gives you a start.

What may be happening is this. The starter pulls the voltage down enuf that you dont get spark. When you let up on starter voltage to coil goes up and will have enuf spark to fire. Took a long time for me to figure that out. Had read some posts on this board about it also.
