John Deere 530 quit running

Took my 530 for a spin about 3/4 mile then it just died. Cranked it and nothing. Checked distributor and all looked fine. Removed some wire covers I installed and left them off. Came back 20 minute later and it started and ran fine. Gas tank is full and its 93 degrees out side and sunny. What would cause it to just shut down then start later? Coil going bad? I'm going on a 200 mile tractor ride 6-14 thru 6-16 and want to be ready. Any suggestions welcome!!

Consider taking spare points and condenser with you. It could be coil too, they don't like heat!

Have fun on your trip!!!

When you looked at the distributor did you crank it to see if the points sparked? I'd put my money on the condenser.

I'll need a 2nd person to crank it while I check points for spark next time it quits. I'm going to install a new condenser just in case!

Why not tie a timing light on it somewhere you can see the flash and go for another ride?

Try pulling coil wire out of distributor cap and it will usually have enough curl set in that you can get it to rest on its boot with metal tip near distributor body. You can sit in the seat and crouch down and see spark jump while cranking.

I guess this idea I posted isnt what you wanted to check after I think about it.

Today's Featured Article - Seeing an Old Friend - by Joe Evans. Dad had a concrete contracting business starting in 1960. One of his first pieces of equipment was a Ferguson TO-35 with a Davis loader. Dad replaced the TO-35 with a MF 202 Workbull, essentially an industrialized Ferguson 35 I am told. Dad bought the 202 new in 1962, and I recall quite clearly going to the dealer with him to sign for it. ... [Read Article]
