1954 cub (6volt) electrical question

Postby Farmall Karl » Sat Aug 18, 2018 3:14 pm

Nothing is coming from my distributor. Coil is fine. Have power direct from coil. But cannot get any spark to my plugs.

Welcome to the FORUM. Check for a spark at the points every time they open and close. No spark at the points, you will not have a spark at the plugs. The points have to be shiny and not burned or pitted. Service manual says file with an ignition file or replace if unable to restore the surface by filing.
