I picked up a 49 8N early last winter. The snow fell and I didn't get a chance to mess with it untill now. I started with the basics, tune
up, clean the fuel system, rebuilt the carb and an oil change. Its hard to start but once it does start the throttle only seems to work from
about midway and up. I read a bunch of posts and tested a bunch of items and it's still the same. I did notice that when I put the throttle
lever all the way down the governor rattles. Increase the throttle and the rattle goes away.

Could the hard starting issue be caused by the governor?

" Could the hard starting issue be caused by the governor? "



No. The absence of low speed throttle response is caused by the governor. See tip # 14.


The hard starting can be causes by a number of things.


6v or 12v?


Is your battery fully charged?

Put an ohm meter on it. 2.5 ohms or so, it's 12v. And it only needs the oem ballast resistor if it's a 12v coil. If you have the additional ceramic resistor, you could easily have too much resistance in the circuit.

Run a jumper wire from the battery directly to the coil and try to start the tractor. Just don't leave it hooked up if the tractor is off. See tip # 30.

What did you set the points at?

Did you set the timing?

Yep, the "real" farmers around here are
having serious problems getting in the
fields. Normally, field corn would have
been planted 2 weeks ago and tomatoes
would be going in as we speak.
