'56 445 - No start - The basics?

Drew Step father just purchased a '56 Moline 445. It hasn't been started for a year and half. During the time it had new plugs/wires/points/condensor but still no start.

We are going to do some basics - Battery/terminals/battery wires and give a jolt of starting fluid w/ some new gas.

If this comes to no avail, what should we look at?

Thank you!

- Drew

Rob The great aspect w/old tractors is that you can narrow down a no-start to two problems: 1) fuel or 2) spark. I'm guessing someone botched the ignition tune-up...

Take out a plug and see if you have spark. If you do; proceed to troubleshooting a fuel problem. Hope this helps,

Rob
