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

check and see if the points are gapped, no gap or too wide(not closing) make sure the point set is grounded properly and the connector tab from the points to the terminal is insulated. if you dont find it here then you have a bad condensor. look closely where the terminal comes out of the distributor and make sure the insulator is intact. i have seen people putiing in points loose them and also cracks from the years have led them to rot and when the terminal is turned they just turn to dust. i found one from just 8n's for mine and put it in he has naa parts as well. the trick is the points have to open and close and not be gronded to the hull of the dist. the only ground on the points should be where the screws hold them in the other side (breaking side should not ground) . good luck and hope this helps

Do you have compression in that cylinder?How did the plug look when you removed it?Was it black and oily?Black and sooty?Did it smell of gas?Did you change your points and condenser?By tractor will not fire on a cylinder,do you mean spark?Check for compression on that cylinder first.No compression,remove the valve cover and look for a broken spring or a stuck valve.Both won't allow that cylinder to build compression.Another thing is a burned valve,it won't be able to seal.You can sometimes hear which one that's bad by removing all the spark plugs except on the bad cylinder.Then turn over the engine and listen at the exhaust and carburetor.You'll hear the air going by the valve that's bad.This is allot of info,I know.Try to check the compression and look at those valves if it's not the points.

You might check ground. some of these units were ground positive. did you switch the posts?This would cause problems since the electrons are on the inside of the condinser.
