Question about Ford 8n,9n,2n, Tractor Starter With Drive
I cannot get a spark from the sparkplug after I changed the coil, rebuilt the distributor, chaged the condenser and battery. The tractor battery is a 6 volt and it ran fine for years until the starter jammed and I had that repaird. The engine turns over but will not start! I had a few hands in the motor at various times over the last 6 months and wires were changed and I have a feeling that something is crossed. The tractor started a while back when you kept your findger down on the starter button, but then one of my friends tinkered with the wires and that cleared that problem but I now have no spark! Can it be the voltage regulator? I can buy this part for $50.00 Canadian but is this the real problem? Any help would be appreciated and I cant wait to have my little red belly out on the farm.
Hi I am Vortash this sounds like a spark gap problem at the distributor points or maybe a fault in the ignition switch .. but the voltage regulator would only regulate the power coming from the dynamo to the battery and as long as the battery is charging then it is ok I would check the following ... Points gap for a fourstroke engine of the age you say I would have thought no less than 12- no mre than 18 thou .. check the distributor rotor arm and cap are connecting properly ..sometimes the carbon connection sticks and doesn't touch the rotor strip , make sure the rotor arm end is not carbonised .. check there are no breaks in the contact breaker wire .. run a wire direct from the battery to the coil and distributor bypassing the ignition switch and see if it starts then proving a switch fault ..hope this helps regards vortash

Most likely the distributor breaker plate has plastic knobs on the bottom side and it if it's bad it will not fire to test remove wire from points with the ignition on test to see if you have power to the points wire if not then the coil is not powered up, if this is the case try testing the coil for power using a light tester to see if the Positive side lights up without the points connected. If it has power then take an ohm meter and test from the point wire hook up to ground, it you get a reading with the ohm meter then the points are shored to the breaker plate assembly.
