||I have resently bought this tractor and have replaced the coil and condesor I have also had to free up the cog on the starter motor. I have had the tractor running but this was only after towing it arround a field. But the problem is when I try to start it with the starter it turns the engine untill it gets compression and then the starter just stops!
I really need help on getting this tractor running.
Any help will be great! thanks Peter

||Peter, Check if your battery is fully charged, check your ignition points gap and timing. check all your starter circuit wiring and connections. The starter motor may have a stuck armature brush, tap it with a lump of wood about 3-4 lbs to try and unstick the brush and retry starting, if not have it reconditioned or replace,p.s. from memory a starter from some u.k. bmc,s or early land rover will fit your fergy. cheers and good luck.
||Try cranking it by hand. If it starts you have a problem with voltage drop in the starter cables, switch or starter motor.
