H won't start
|Ken||My 51 H won't start. After setting 4/5 hours it starts for about 4/5 seconds and dies, won't even offer to fire after that. Cranks over good with new batt and cables. Has always started good prior, summer or winter, it is now 25/30 degrees and damp, 85% humidity. It is always parked inside. Doesn't seem to matter if I choke it or not, throttle closed or open, same result. Has new points, condensor, dist cap, wires, and plugs last summer, but i don't use this tractor for anything other than show's and etc. it does get a lot of starts and stops with no real work hours.
Any help appreciated
|John M||Bad coil or condensor....
|Ken||Thanks John, I will start with a new coil, it has not been replaced, is very old. Probably original, I've had this H since 1960.
check the spark output of the coil, to see if it is indeed a spark problem.
|pete||if it has a ballast resister,you might ck that,also ck to see if the dist is turning. you can do that easy.pop the cap off,put it in gear,rock the tractor back and fourth.dont loose dist setting this way.
|Ken||Thanks to John and all others who helped with this tractor. I put on a new coil, it started right up.
