Is this hard to do? How is timing set with this distributor as there are no marks?

I did mine for the first time this spring. It was remarkably easy. Just follow the instructions Dunk gave you, or use your I&T FO-4 shop manual.

And we'll be glad to walk you through any steps!

Well for the most part if it was running good there is no reason to mess with the timing. Your problem is that it died on you and now you have no spark. Tring to do to many things to fix a simple problem can/will make things worse not better. I would start by replaceing the coil. Then see if you have spark. If not since you have the after market switch you most likely don't have a bad switch. Then after tring a new coil check/replace the points. To check/replace the point you can remove the distubutor by removeing the 2 bolts that hold in on. It will only go back on one way so you can't mess up the timing unless you force it on and then you will brake the distubutor. On these tractors its always better to use the KISS way of thinking and since it was running and just died it has to be something simple like a bad coil

Is it hard to replace the points? My manual says something about the timing needing to be set with a straight edge whenever you replace the points.

Well if you leave the distubutor on the engine yes its hard to replace the points but if you take it off you can do it sitting at a table and is very easy to replace them. The distubutor only fits in one way and has an off set tag so it can only be put back on one way unless you force it to go on and htne you have to buy a new one

I'm thinking he was asking that if you replace the points do you HAVE to set the timing too. Please, I'm not trying to be a disrespectful here just trying to help the guy out and let someone clarify it for him as some of us are really new to these tractors and as you guys that know this stuff so well Smile
