If it is the same mag as my LA, the advance is forward to retard and stop. Rearward for full advance.

Thanks Gene
I will try it out next week, It has been standing for 25-28 years and fired up with a tow from another modern tractor as the chap that has bought it is a farmer. in its hey day it was a trophy winner, but time marches on. I my self am rebuilding a 1943 Oliver 70 Row Crop, Hence being asked to see what needs doing to this one. We put fresh petrol in it and it started on a 3 foot pull !
I was absolutely amazed. I drove it around the farm for a bit and it is now parked up snug in a barn. I will have to change the Spark plugs as they are the 3 part plugs and are falling apart, besides that I think we can find some implement to pull to make it work and put it on TVO when we mix some up.

Thanks very much for your help

Regards

Richard

PS where is the best place to get hold of a workshop and operators manual for one.

Hi Their, I know Rodger I live about 6 miles away and can never figure out why he has so many, he can't ride them all at once.
I myself am rebuilding a 1943 Oliver 70 Row Crop. have had it 3 years and thought it would take only one to get it up and running. the thing about the American Tractors is getting the parts.

Regards

Richard
ps What spark plugs should a DC4 have ?
