Re: Put remote coil back still no spark

Re: Valve Assembly Fail

Re: Trip back in time

I think that this behavior was not unique to the Fordson tractor, all tractors prior to Harry Ferguson's three point hitch design probably suffered the same weakness.

Re: spark plug wires

Re: '38 headlights switch/tube

Re: Stray Voltage?

My guess is that you are picking up interference from the high voltage ignition circuit. My other guess is that you left the flux capacitor energized and you will end up back in 1952 if you exceed...

Re: How to compute HP

I agree, JWL's book is the best guide to how much horsepower can be expected from a set of hardware on the flathead engine.

The horsepower of an engine is calculated as follows:
