IH 154 Cub Lo-Boy ignition problem?

Sun May 07, 2006 9:25 pm

In the process of working on the carb :twisted: ( another long story), my 154 Cub lo-Boy stopped running :( . I have poor/intermintant/sometimes no spark at the points. I have power to the distributor. Do the :?: points need dressing, new coil or condensor? Thanks!!

Try cleaning the points and resetting the gap. That's the logical first step.

The points, rotor and condensor are a good place to start. Also check all connections and consider replacing the distributor cap as well. But I'd guess the points are the most likely culprit.
