Ruzz Hi, This great tractor came with the property. It needs a tune up. That means I need to set the timing. So, I need to know which way the flywheel turns when the engine is running? Any help is appreciated; and any suggestions that will make this activity productive will also be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

thepumpguysc Just bump the key switch & watch the fan.
Ruzz That's a good idea. Thanks.
Ruzz Well, the tune up went well and the tractor also went well. Until it wouldn't start. It turns over and then starts backfiring. How bad is this mechanical problem? Thanks for your help.
