TO30 starting problems
|Steve||I wasnt getting any spark so it turns out to be the coil was bad. So I replaced the coil and also put new points & rotor ect. Now I have spark so I go ahead and it fired up i ran it for a little while everything seems ok. Next day I try to start it up And now the engine is slow cranking like the batt is dead. And I removed the plugs and tried it same thing. Are the pistons seizing up? It had been sitting for a long time.
|Jeff Z.||The battery may not be getting charged. Put a charger on the battery and try it after it is fully charged.
|Jerold Ketron|| First off, when you ran the tractor after replacing the coil, etc. did you by any chance change the position of the distributer, if so you may have advanced the timing to a point that the engine is "bucking" against the starter,(prefiring). Another point to think about, when it was running, did you pay attention to the oil pressure? No oil pressure may have led to the scoring of the cylinder walls thus causing the the engine to have undue drag. BUT the most critical point is that if all things mentioned above isn't the problem, I would remove the starter and have new bushings put in on both ends, because it sounds to me that it may be the starter armature is dragging against the fields making it to turn over sluggishly, and install new brushes too while doing so, will save you the task later on
