there should be a 1 inch hole in the flywheel housing looking at the flywheel behind motor. YOu rotate the motor by hand untill you see the TDC (top dead center #1 cylinder) in the hole. At this point you rotate the distributor one way on the other untill the point just starts to open. That is what makes the coil "fire".

Hi. Would that also explains why I"m not seeing any spark in the points? Out of timing, maybe? I"m getting current to the coil and to the distributer.

Chris! You have juice to the distributer , from the coil. Now check with a test light and see if you have juice to 1/2 of the points, with the pionts blocked open with a piece of cereal box paper. If you have juice to one of the halves, of the OPEN points, then you just have to clean the points, with your wifes nail board. Timing is independent of fire to the points, and will not affect the fire to the points. OH blow the grit out of the dist, after sanding the points.

the point opens up and you get no voltage path to ground. Normally the power (12 volts or 6) goes to the coil, then out of coil to the distributor point, and the point grounds when it is closed. The capacitor is in series with this and connects to the point terminal and case is grounded. YOu can not let the wires on the small screw (on point) touch the frame or bracket. IF the point is not adjusted right, it will not open, and then you will get no spark. If it opens at the wrong time, you get spark, but it does no good. If the point is opening and closing and breaking the current path, and still no spark, then change the condenser... test again... if no spark, you might have a bad coil.

Does anyone know the correct adjustment of the 2 sloted holes that move the part the distributor goes into?

Once you get it static timed (correct timing while not running), you use those slots to fine tune the timing while she's running. Going to be a different setting for every tractor. Get #1 piston (closest to radiator) on TDC of compression stroke and set the rotor correctly with the cap for #1. Best way to find TDC compression is to remove the spark plug and put your finger over the hole. When you feel air coming past your thumb, you are on compression stroke.

Thanks I have adjusted that back and forth with no noticeable changes. I do think I have a wd with no timing marks.

Put #1 at TDC compression and you don't need flywheel marks.
