  1. Found the problem to be the voltage regulator. Running great now once the voltage regulator was replaced. Thanks for all you input on this.
  2. I ordered the alternator from NAPA, they found the part number for me, not sure of the model but it's a Wilson alternator.
  3. I will have a look for it. These conversations have been very informative. Thanks for your input everyone. Mechanical stuff, I can usually figure out but auto electrical is my weakness I'm afraid. Vintage diesel, not much electrical there but gassers are a different story.
  4. So this alternator doesn't have an internal voltage regulator? I thought all alternators did. Not trying to be a smart ass, just trying to learn so I can get this problem fixed. I don't see an external voltage regulator anywhere on the tractor.
  5. Tried the multimeter on a pickup and seems to stay steady at 14.2. I don't think it's the meter. cleaned the connections on the starter and battery that didn't seem to help either and it does start as long as there is spark.
  6. Didn't load test the battery, but it is only a couple months old. i will try the jumper wire thing. Thanks
  7. I'm working on my neighbor's 656 gas that is loosing spark and voltage is all over the map. It will be running along fine, then out of the blue will just die. When i check for spark after it dies there is nothing. Changed the coil thinking that was the problem but that didn't help. After a few minutes it seems to come back to life and starts again. Along with this problem when I put my multimeter on the battery the voltage jumps around all over the place, from 2 volts to 14. Thought the voltage regulator was gone in the alternator so I changed out the alternator and this didn't help. I cleaned up the ground cable where it is attached to the tractor, that didn't seem to help either. Does anyone think the stalling problem and the voltage problem are connected? If so where show I start looking? Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. That helps a bunch, thank you! I do have a 1 on the distributor cap so now i know exactly where it needs to be.
  9. Got my Grandpa's M home a couple weeks ago and was looking around at stuff, taking things apart and got to the rotor drive on the magneto, took the cover off and realized the drive was 2 meshing gears. One on the magneto and one on the magneto drive. So not sure if i got back together exactly right. Can anyone tell me where the rotor should be pointed when the crankshaft pulley is on the #1 TDC mark? My IT manual doesn't mention anything about this that i can see. help please
  10. don't think i get free shipping to Canada ever, but everything i have ordered from them has been right and good quality. And yes always get the cow tails, good snack while your working on the tractor. I see you're into the OS models, sounds like a good collection.
  11. Well, put gas in the tank today because i have some spark and now have compression thanks to the 2 stroke oil in the pistons and gas ran out as fast as i was putting it in. sediment bowl shut off valve assembly is old and dried up so going to get a new one of those as well as some magneto parts and try again. Looking at Steiner tractor for these parts. You guys had good luck with Steiner?
  12. sorry haven't read the whole post but as far as rad goes, could you get a local shop to build you one? as long as tanks are good they could put cores in it.
  13. Cats are more popular that td-15. anything there that would fit in the hole?
