Bad gas or gummed up main jet in carb. If it has points, could also be bad condensor. Do you get spark at the plugs?

Have a ford 2n tractor with stripped camshaft gear. no timing mark on crank gear. how to time crank to cam?

Find number one cylinder and bring it to TDC, Rotate the cam till both valves in that cylinder are closed and then hook the chain to the gears. crank it by hand while observing the valves to be sure they are operating normal in respect to intake, compression and exhaust.

Washed tractor and now it wont start

Would help to know what you mean by "won't start" - any sound at all, cranking, etc., as well as what type of (lawn?) tractor. Best assumption is part of ignition/starting system got wet. Allow to dry, possibly use blow dryer to speed it up. Can also try pulling any wires going to spark plug and make sure they are dry.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Glow plug relay

81418784532&item=281418784532">G1900 Kubota, the glow plugs are energized when the keyswitch is moved halfway to the start position. Also the glow plug indicator light is illuminated when in this position. I hold the key in that position until the glow plug light goes out, and then crank the engine. On really cold days I repeat the glow plug cycle several times before cranking.

Early 1952 J.D. G model- runs very rough, vibrates. runs good on pull, vibrates. Tried good different carb and dist. This tractor apparently was built of many other tractors. The flywheel was out of t

check the timing setting as it may be too far advanced ( set at 5 degrees advanced to start) check and adjust the fuel setting of the main jet as it may be too rich at idle.. You state that the flywheel was out of true and with the vibrations I suspect that the crank shaft may be bent. Something that would not normally be checked

Timing settings on john deere 2140 four cylinder tractor

Setting valve timing isn't rocket science. Step 1 is to turn the crank until the timing mark on the pulley is aligned with the mark on the block. If you can't find the timing marks remove the no 1 spark plug or injector. Place a straight piece of wire into the hole and slowly turn the crank until the wire is pushed right to the top. At this point there will be a slight movement of the crank either way where no movement is felt or seen on the wire. This is called top dead centre (tdc) on no. 1 cylinder. By the way, no 1 cylinder is always the cylinder nearest the radiator.
The next step is to turn the camshaft - assuming the tappet cover has already been removed - and to watch for the point at which the no 1 cylinder's valves "rock", that is, the exhaust valve closes just before the intake valve opens. Watch the tappets, they will alternate as you move the camshaft, which by the way is not easy to do since you have to overcome the compression of the valve springs.
Once you have no1 tdc set and no1 valve set rocking, attach the timing chain and replace the spark plug / injector.
If your tractor has a petrol (gasoline) engine, remove the distributor cap. See that the distributor rotor is pointing to the no 1 spark plug wire position on the cap. Turn the engine anticlockwise just a mite off tdc, and see if the point gap is just breaking.
If all these timing issues are sorted, the engine should kick over without any hassles.
Have fun, mechanics are a gas.

I have a 2000 Lincolns ls with a v-6.A month or so back we took at on a road trip and went shopping ,came back out and at first crank it didnt start but after that it fired right up.Well as of today we...

Yes it is your fuel pump. Just for giggles try this next time you get in a bind turn the key on and the fuel pum will go on but dont start it just cycle it. and you hear the pump as you cycle it it build pressure and get easy to start. Why does it work at first crank the fuel pump shoot out pressure the then slowly turns(Manufacture design because its in the fuel tank) . when the fuel pump weakens you cant realy floor it and take off it just stumbles or worst stall. If it was a crank sensor,cam sensor, ignition control, you wouldnt drive home youd be towed home.

Toyota Landcruiser ute HJ75 2H Dsl 4lt starting problems

Sounds like pump timing is out of sync with engine crank and camshaft. Utterly crucial on a diesel engine. all needs to be pinned in place when refitting chain or belt, then pump timing sho uld be set up with a dial test indicator. A job for someone who knows what their doing. Before considering buying this carry out compression check as if timing is out between cam/crank tow starting could have bent valves!

Hope this helps!
