I want to install an electronic ignition on my 660, but I tried a timing light on the flywheel first and was unable to read any of the timing marks. Any suggestions, or just leave the old points in?

Thanks,

Chuck

Same problem .... with tractor not running!! use a screwdriver to turn the flywheel until you get around to the timming marks .... then dot the correct mark with red fingernail polish so you can see it when its running.

Hi Chuck,

I have experienced the same difficulty; here's what I did. Turn the engine over by hand while watching for the timing marks in the little window; they are really there. Once you find them, clean that area of the flywheel well and then you should be able to see them with your timing light. On my 3 cylinder 4000, I actually had to pull the starter and turn the engine over with a big screwdriver. You will love the electronic ignition. You will need a good battery and a healthy electrical system because if the system voltage is pulled down below about 4.5 volts, the electronics won't fire.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
