Allis chalmers b starter problem

Engine was just completely rebuilt,head, valves, pistons and sleaves.
Engine turns over fine with no plugs but under compression will only turn one revolution. Put in 3 rebuit starters already. This is a 6 volt system. what's up?

    Cam shaft never taken out, when cold will crank a few times and even run for a few seconds, I know the carb needs work, I found a stuck float today. Engine will turn over with the hand crank. When hot will only crank about one rev then seems to draw too much current to keep cranking.

Two things come to mind. If the plug base is too deep it could bottom out on the piston, and if the cam/shaft timing is off by a tooth or more it could also cause this problem. Check it out.

When setting points on a CA Allis Chalmers Tractor. What should the gap be and do you do it on the lobe or flat service

Set the gap on the high spot on the lob,it should be set at around 50000 or twice the plug gap,this is just a rule of thumb,but changing the timing by turning the distributer will get the engine to max performance after this has been done.

What is the correct way to hook up the starter cellinoid on a Allis Chalmer D17 series 4?

Well first make sure that the routing coil is clean of debris and dirt. Then you are going to want to oil both sides before assembly. The cellinoid connects the same way an oscillating pendullum does. Just with a bolt! Easy as that on both ends....just be sure to adjust pressure from valve so you don't create a dangerous situation from pressure build up!!........Happy trails!

Tractor will not fire points look clean

I am not familiar with the Allis Chalmers brand, but if the coil is good and you are still not getting spark to the plugs, I would consider a sheared flywheel key as the likely cause. Hope this helped and best wishes.
