Thanks Bruce, you are right on with this information. I have to be honest friend, I am almost superstitious about this machine. I have repaired many engines, rebuilt transmissions, and worked on other components on vehicles, riding mowers, two cycle, you name it. But this is almost like a mystery to me. I think a big problem for me has been this disconnected feeling I have about the tractor. I know nobody around here using these tractors (we bought ours after taking a road trip to check it out) and can't buy a part in our area. As a result, I end up just trying to throw things at it from other experiences, and hope it'll work.

One thing I had not mentioned before is that I had a 50's automobile repair gentleman come by once and he just seemed totally confused and overwhelmed by it all. I guess some of it rubbed off on me and added to my despair.

Regardless, you are right on and I'll give it a whirl in the next couple of days. I don't have one of these spark gap tools, though I am familiar with them, have seen them before. I do have a plug tester (and the plugs are showing color) but not a gap tester, so I will get one. My wife runs up to the area where Autozone is located and she does so almost every day - our closest Autozone is 45 minutes away. I just called the local parts place only 20 minutes away and they don't have any in stock. "COVID inventory problems". Okay.

Anyhow, I'll get back to you, and thanks...
