    farmall H

    Default Farmall H

    Hi I am new to this site. My question is that I have a 1942 Farmall H that is refusing to start. I have good fuel flow but no spark at all. I cleaned the points and plugs and checked and cleaned any and all electrical contacts but the tractor will not fire. I have checked everything that I can think of but if anyone can help me in this matter I would really appreciate it. Thank You.....Dave.

    You can try disconnecting the kill wire from the side of the magneto, and see if you then get spark. Might have a short to ground somewhere along the wire.
