A nice sunny day today
great day for some seat time hauling firewood on Ellie and playing with the Super A and the H. More on the Super A later, for now we have news on the H.
Gord was able to come today and we got into the H again. First thing we did was put those wonderful illuminated Spark Plug Wire Testers on the plugs and the wires connected to them. Then Gord finally got the screw for the points loose and I then adjusted the points. 0.020" gap.. a little tug when closed but not a lot. Felt ok. Tried to see if we had spark.
-- nada, zilch, zippo, nuddink. No blinkin lights at all.
So I took the cap, rotor and dust cover off. Grabbed the point file I have (Em's old emery board
), gave it a few good swipes, blew it out with a bit of air (me) put it all back together again. told Gord give it a whirl.
One or two revolutions and tada
she fired... and started
But you could hardly tell it was running that engine is so quiet. Blew me away. Anywasy, turned on the gas a bit more and Gord took it for a small spin up to the house - me riding shotgun on the drawbar. Em was quite amazed.. real quiet and not a tiny tractor. I think I have found a new interest... not sure what I would do with something that size, but it is an interesting tractor nonetheless.
Again, I gots to thank Cecil, Dave, Larry and Bob for helping me get me mojo back.. I am enjoying this... this is great
