No it does not run. we are trying to start it for the first time since the over haul....... timing seems to be exactly right compared to the manual. We have good compression and good plugs,wires,new points,new valves and springs. We had it over bored and the timing on the crank shaft is right so we are stumped..... Yes it backfires out the carb when choked.
If your compression is good as measured against specification then mechanically you should be OK. Good compression generally eliminates cylinder, piston, rings, valves and camshaft timing problems.
I'd double-check the distributor timing. Make sure that the rotor is pointing towards the appropriate ignition terminal in the distributor cap when the reference cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke.
I'm assuming you've got a decent spark? If it can jump 1/8" gap to ground and is bright your ignition components should also be OK.
We are getting oil to the filter with good pressure. Here is the line oil is supposed to go through. we took it of the block but still no pressure. this metal line bypasses the head
this is NOT our tractor!!!:flag_of_truce:
We did not put a working gauge on it but it should have enough to make that line squirt oil. I think we will try to run it a bit. some guys think we might just have air in the system because we had every thing empty.
After acquiring a trailer large enough to haul my old a around, I discovered that the rear wheel spacing was 84" but my trailer is only 82" between fenders. Great! Now I have to change the wheel spacing on a tractor that probably hasn't been changed in 70 years. How do you do this? With a...
Well after waking up at 3:00 this morning and driving almost 700 mikes we have a new family member. Old John decided to come live with us.
I think he’s a 41 or 42 H. Serial number is tough to read.
So far he seems to be in pretty good shape. A few little odds and ends to work out but overall...
It was a beautiful day for a sleigh ride. My grandfather bought this 50 in 1955. I put many hours in the seat baling hay from 2nd grade to 10th grade. 10k bales a year. It was my alarm clock as a kid. I could hear my grandfather fire it up every morning. So everytime I start it, it brings...
I have a set of the donut style weights that are no longer needed, what is a fair value?
I did some searching on the ole inter web and found a set for $250. I really don't know if that's in the ball park, so I am asking the wealth of knowledge here at GTT. :thumbup1gif:
