    there are usually dots near the teeth and there somethings will only be a beveled tooth (like on the rotor gears of my A mangeto). Are you looking for timing marks for the distributor gear or the engine? If its the engine, there is a line on the flywheel that will aline with a pointer on the clutch cover (flat plate on the front of the transmission). Sometimes, well often the mark is hard to find on the flywheel. sometimes there is a white mark on there for you. a hand crank helps a lot as well.

Farmall a tractor runs but makes a popping sound thru the intake pipe. The tractor hasn't been run for many years.

Possibly a timing issue. Check the timing first. Also check the compression to verify both are within spec

How hard is to install a coil in a 1950 super a farmall

The super a uses a delco distributer along with a stand alone canister coil like those used in most older mid 70 cars, so all you should need is to pick up one from a junk yard or go to TSC and pick up a new one
