MF TO-35 distributor beoing pushed up
I just bought a Massey-Fergusen TO-35 that is in good shape and has been running well. All of a sudden it is pushing the distributoer shaft upward and disengages the shaft from the cam. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? The camshaft appears solid in its bearings and the distributor clamp clamps the shaft well. Frankly I'm out of ideas.
|Sheldon||First check the distributer. If the discributer binds, it will cause this problem.
Your camshaft bearings may also be worn. If the gear surface on the cam is damaged, replace the camshaft and possibly the gear on the distributer. If you have to install cam bushings in the block, they will have to be machined in. Oversized timing gears should be available for this tractor if you have too much backlash.
|jerry||mine did the same thing, my mechanical advance in the distributer fell apart (below points and condensor) and lock up my distributer. Put in a new distributer and the problem is fixed.
