Well got the 860 running today. After changing Points, dist cap, rotor battery leads, and pulling the Carb apart, all with no help. I resorted to getting a 12v Coil and 12v Battery, hooking up the battery, Neg ground and just a positive to the new coil and jump started to the starter, (had disconnected the Generator and Starter). The thing started rite up, So I am guessing that I had a bad 6v coil or some other bad wire. Two questions.
1. Am I just masking a unknown problem by useing the 12v?
2. What are your thoughts on just converting to 12v for good? The tractor is for working, so I don't care too much about keeping it original.
Thanks alot for any advice.
