Yes. And that is a great price. I paid right at $30- for it.Rudi wrote:Eugene:

Start again at the beginning. Compression checks, dry then wet. Double and tripple check the ignition timing and system. Then move on to the fuel system.ShineRunner wrote:Can't get the cub to run smooth. It will run fairly good at below half throttle and will not adjust. Above half it sputters and blows black smoke.

I agree you have a carburation related problem.ShineRunner wrote:More like fuel related black.
Recheck everything the previous owner accomplished (?). Set engine on TDC and see where the rotor is pointing. Points gap, mechanical advance, - everything. Lub the wick under the rotor. Most folks remove the distributor to change points. Could be the distributor is a tooth off.ShineRunner wrote: The guy that had the tractor put a carb kit in, points, plugs, distributor cap.

Running rough at mid to high idle. Might be part of the problem. Could also be that the mechanical advance is not working.ShineRunner wrote:I was just thinking (don't let that scare anyone) if the guy I bought the Cub from had the distributor off and maybe he got the distributor drive shaft off a tooth, could that cause my problem?

Skip purchasing the dwell meter if it's just for the Cub. Just set the point gap at .020"ShineRunner wrote:I am also in the process of replacing my old timing light and dwell meter.
