Ive looked everywhere for the gap but havent found it in my book. I want to say its .18 or .20 ? Also what is the plug gap .25 ? Ty in advance
never hurts to do points and condenser but before you buy new coil be sure it's not grounding somewhere in wireTy for the reply. Tractor has been sitting since October an when I need it most I get no spark. So im changing new coil an points an condenser. If thats not it it has to be the coil....
corrosion is a fact of life..if it whirs and churns it wears out...be sure pos on coil is getting 12 v..with key on before you tear into it...Ive checked all the wires so far , they seem to be fine. Ive not had to change any of them for many years....so im guessing its due.
Awesome ty. I wasn't positive on the .25 so glad I asked.
The points finally burnt. I installed new points an condenser an new plug and it fired right up. It didn't like the .18 gap so I bumped it to .20 an run awesome. Points were 30 years old. You would think they would last longer ...Break out the test lamp and do some checking before taking things apart.
Got 12 volts to the coil w/the key on?
Lamp flashing while cranking on the point side of the coil?
No spark at plug?
These checks will tell the story.
