Congrats on the tractor.  They are nice to have around, just wish I new more on how to trouble shot them.  My 1941 9n is giving me some good practice.  Stalled the while under a load the other day, it had been running a while moving snow, now i have no spark to the plugs, have power to top of coil, not sure what would have burned out or made it quit running.  If any sugestions please let me know.  Thanks Mark

you know.. i just got mine saturday and have not had alot of time to even look at it.
i did see a set of ballast resistors on the underside of gauge cluster, on a car, that would be a good place to start (make sure it is not open between the terminals)  other than that, no clue... i am going to order a manual for mine, but have not yet...

If you have power to the coil but no fire at the plug you should check the points.  The front mount distributor is known for have a shorts inside it that will kill the fire to the plug.
