How to time a distributer on any letter series Farmall tractor.


Take out number 1 spark plug, stick your finger or the like in the plug hole and turn the engine over slowly with the hand crank or fan blade till you feel compression against your finger (compression stroke). Bring the engine to TDC by lining up the notch on the front pulley with the pin on the front engine cover. Mount your distributer with the rotor pionting to #1 on the cap. Put #1 plug in #1 plug wire, ground the plug in a position where you cam watch for spark. Turn on the ignition switch and slowly turn the distributer in the direction the rotor turns until the points are closed, then the oposite direction until you get a spark at the plug and tighten down the distributer, and you are in time. ;) This is the process for any letter series with a distributer.
