I installed a new 6 volt battery in my 8N. the tractor started and ran fine. I parked it, started it again with no problems. 2 hours later, the tractor is dead. It will not crank, and there is no spark. I bypassed the key switch and jumped right to the starter from a second vehicle with no success. the engine turns over, but no spark. does anyone have any ideas what to do next?

Dead battery equals no spark so charge it up. #2 did you by chance leave the switch on?? If yes you may have burned up the points and or the coil

" anyone have any ideas what to do next?"

Charge the battery (see tip # 60) in the tractor.

Otherwise, no spark even w/ a jumper battery.

See tip # 43 before you jump it again.

Then, after that new battery is charged, check it. (tip # 49) The last battery I bought 2 years ago was bad from the store.

Lastly, find out why the battery drained so quickly (assuming it's good).

Did you leave the key on? (tip # 38)
