9n won't start

edward I have a ford 9n tractor that won't start. The spark resister gets hot. I have already put new points, condencer and spark resistor on it and now the spark resistor gets hot and it still won't start. HELP
Bob G Do you get a spark at the plugs?
is it 46 or 12 volts?
by spark resistor I assume you mean the ballast resistor.
Check for fuel flow thru the carburetor by removing the plugin the bottom of the bowl and measuring the fuel flow. it should fill a pint jat in 2 to 3 minutes!
what did you gap the points to? Front mount dist should be 0.015"
good luck
