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.

Hello All just an update.. Twopop- I at first used the coil without the resistor, and I have learned the errors of my ways... got a new coil today with a built in resistor.. I have pretty much made up my mind to go ahead and do a full 12v conversion with electronic ignition. As I said in my first post, This tractor will work for a living and I want the least amount of problems as possible. I'll save the restoration for the old 9N or something else..

Thanks to all for your help..
Great forum

YOU WILL LIKE THAT 12V. IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT SIMPLE YOU COULD READJUST YOUR REG TO CHARGE AT 12V.

it is simple to put 12v points and condensor in this tractor. while you are at it, change to a 12v delco alternator and get rid of the gen. and reg. that is there now. If you think you might wish to restore to origional one day and quit working the tractor, save all the 6v stuff to put back on it. Just my two cents worth. Moye
