|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?
|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,
