I will agree with you.. I bought a B in Ohio off Craig's List 2 years ago for 200.00. The people wanted it GONE.
I made that happen & bought it for my Son In Law. It would start with one good pull on the Crank, but Not off the
starter. He wanted to switch it to 12 volts, I said NO, it suppose to work fine on 6 Volts.. The Ground & Hot connections
didn't look as bad as the one pictured. I Cleaned them up with wire brush & used a dremmel tool. WOW What a difference.
I mostly work on John Deere's & was flying blind on the Little A/C. But it's a fine tractor with a adjustable frt axle
he hauls in his fire wood with.. I had it for about a month fixing, rebuilding what needed done & then created a Snow Plow
fro a old Jeep for the frt. I don't think you could buy it from my Son In Law for 2000.00 now.

I had problem with plugs fouling on a newely rebuilt Ferguson a few years ago. I talked to a Champion Rep and he advised me to get plugs with a higher heat range. I did and never had anymore trouble. He clamed plugs were specked out for different fuel when those old engines were made. I won't say anything about ethynol but you get the drift.

(quoted from post at 19:57:45 11/15/17) A good hot mag will wake it up. I rebuild them & have one just like new for sale if you are interested.
Ok, no improvements in starting yet other than it will start right up with a brand new set of plugs the first time and then it goes right back to starting hard. (Need hotter plug?) Another thing that was interesting is that if one plug wire was removed it would start.(more voltage for the other 3?) any thoughts or still a mag issue? thanks

Have you checked to make sure the valves aren't adjusted too tight?

Nothing has changed with the valves. If I remember right they were just torqued to spec and there wasn't really any adjustment to them when we did the rings 5 years ago.
