How do I wire this Thing?

Thu May 22, 2008 8:49 pm

Can someone help me with the wiring from the disributor cap to the spark plugs. My C still wont start. I don't know where to get manuals for my C and H :( :( If anyone could help that would be great. I am killing my battery and starter trying to get the thing to start... Is it supposed to be a 6 volt or 12 volt? My Cub and A I got all good and running, but the C is driving me mad. Wait I wish I was able to drive it. I get my mail with my A and I cant even get the C out of my driveway. I know someone can help me.

Thanks Marc

you can get manuals from either a local dealer, or form http://www.binderbooks.com Wiring of the C should be like the H

The distributor or magneto timing on the C and H, which ever ignition system you have, is the same as the Cub. Timing marks for the C are listed as being visable through the hand hole cover on the bottom of the clutch housing.

Count the number of caps or chambers in/on the battery. 3 caps or chambers = 6 volts. 6 = 12 volt.

Some advertisers on this board carry IH parts other than Cub. Give them a try for the manuals. Also many farm/home/ranch stores carry I&T manuals (for Farmall tractors).

Wiring from distributor to plugs on the C is the same as the A.

Thanks everybody. I found some manuals at binderbook.com. I will try timing the C again today and let everyone know. I am still looking for parts.
These forums are great. Pictures coming soon
