1st start 0n engine

Recommended Posts


Well, I was so pleased. 1st start of the tractor I bought and completely went through.no fire. new coil,points and condenser. Found single wire key switch bad. disconnected the wire at points. Fired right up. Ran for a good 5 minutes or so. I was able to adjust the carb. ran it slow and fast. I went to adjust the points, put a wrench on the nut to loosen it, engine shut off. Now I have no spark . I had an old condenser,replaced it - no spark. any ideas? I don't have another condenser until tomorrow.

UP DATE !!!!! great news... I found the wire on the new points ( the wire on the arm off the points to the base) had come off.Swapped the old parts back on after cleaning the points:D. It's running great. I had bought this last December. Being overseas a lot has kept me from finishing it. until now.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
