Guys I've got a TD18 built in 49, it's in good condition. Last fall I parked it and pulled the engine clutch out for a rebuild and now I cannot get it to for fire on gas. I'm getting fuel and spark, it doesn't make sense. I charged the magneto magnet, double checked the timing, took the manifold off and checked the butterfly dampers. While the manifold was off I taped the main intake ports shut and tried a little either directly in the lower ports, still no fire. Cleaned the plugs which are almost new, gapped them also. This thing has always seemed to not like to fire on gas very well and I've always suspected a weak magneto magnet but that's ruled out now. Also magneto has a new condenser and points. I'm at a loss and don't know what else to check, please help! Thanks, Mike
Hey Guys and Girls New to forum so go easy on me !! I’ve inherited a 56 TD18A-182 which hasn’t been started in 5 years or so ? Was wondering if anyone had a wiring schematic for it as the wiring has been butchered and replaced . We got it going on Gas but we have cooked a couple of coils as it’s been wired negative ground !! anyway just need a diagram to help put it back to how it was originally
