Pump gas working in that motor?

 

Yep 91 octane no problem. It’s 10.3:1 but that’s about the limit for iron heads on 91. Did the front brakes today, backed it out and worked in the driveway, went to go for a longer drive and the MSD box quit. Checked everything and it’s the box for sure. It’s being triggered and is outputting a tach signal but not outputting any voltage to the primary coil windings. Nothing obviously wrong on the board either. I’m sure I can fix it but I’m leaving tomorrow for work... might have a line on a loaner for tomorrow get a drive in before I go. Sounds more “sane” with the exhaust on that’s for sure...

That sucks could be a vibration issue causing a failure on the circuit board.

Make sure it's rubber mounted.

IIRC the marine units might be epoxy filled  

Not looking forward to Monday myself

I am out on the road next week because we're short handed 

What's the duty cycle on the bulker?

I don’t see any obvious issues on the board. Even pulled the cover off the transistors/mosfets, no heat or damage. Checked a few components but would really need to sit down and reverse engineer the board to diagnose further. I’m leaving tomorrow afternoon for two months on the bulker. Shifts are 4 on 8 off twice a day plus overtime, 7 days a week. There’s three of us on that shift which makes up a manned engine room 24/7.

The road is pretty narrow at my place. I tagged my neighbour up the road and buddys shop. Was going to wreck the tires under the big sign today but the MSD quit!

Ahhh think those have been posted before but the front one is a 1925 that my uncles restored in the early 90’s. The other is a 1926 that’s in nice shape and has a good rust patina. The 25 runs but could use an engine freshen, the 26 was bought with the pistons in a box. Don’t see any major issues with the engine. Got rings and misc parts for it to run some day. Planning on leaving it a patina tractor.

Pretty sure normal bore is 4”

edit, the N Fordson’s were 4 1/8” I believe...

The one that came out of mine were 4.0375 oversized from rebuild engine exchange possibly. Reason I asked . I think I got one if you need it but I’m sure I wouldn’t use it , up to you 

yep n we’re 4 1/8 

I could not find pistons ,any ,a year of spun around , contact my engine builder ,he went to Sue at wiseco in Mentor. Got them made .08 over to match clean up. Vroom! , 2 years wasted , thunder !
Got .08 Hastings rings from Chevy v8 in it . I have 4 sets of rings come to think of it ,you can have if you need them if you go this route . V8 rings were 40 bucks cheaper than 4 cylinders . Dah we went that way. Reason I got four sets extra.

the weeds I get into make me sneeze !
