I have a case 530, converted to 12v that has run great for me for over a year, but about two months ago, I started to notice an occasional miss. Chalking it up as the tractor needing a tune up, I purchased all the parts and installed them. Since Ive done that, the miss has persisted to the point that it hardly stays running. Ive replaced the cap, rotor and points, plugs and wires and after finding very faint spark I replaced the coil. There is 12v going into the coil, but its not making it to the plugs consistently. Ive double and triple checked my work, followed all the wires to check for pinches or breaks and cleaned the ground up to ensure good connection, but nothing seems to work. Theres isnt too many places for things to go wrong, and I feel like Ive checked everything. What am I missing?

Did you replace the condenser?? If you did put the old one back in. Now days you stand a 50/50 chance a new condenser is bad right out of the box. Also double check that the point gap stayed where it should be and clean the points with the flap from the box they came in

As Old has stated about the condenser, they dont leave an off a lot of room for that condenser and its location is paramount so that it does not rub on the cam shaft. I had that happen one time. Double check. CM

530s were 12V out of the factory, Positive ground. The lead from the coil to the distributor should have a bright flash with a test light when turning the engine. a weak flash indicates a bad condenser, In other posts I have elaborated on how a condense works in this application. Check the cranking voltage. A weak battery or bad cables are your worse enemy when chasing starting problems. If the system is hooked up negative ground make sure the coil - terminal goes to the distributor terminal stud. Occasionally I have had the condenser terminal at the points screw stick up far enough to contact the steel cover, bend it over to eliminate that possibility, checking the coil tower HV wire with the cover off would show if the condenser lead is shorted. If all is well the coil should throw at least 1/2 inch bright blue spark while cranking.
