With a dog or cat, an old saying is: "Instant obedience, just add water (with spray bottle)" ... not so much, it would appear, with my Ford 8N tractor! lol :-)

We've a good bit of rain this morning, & upon arriving home from work (as is my custom), went to start 8N tractor. Alas! No joy. Worked fine yesterday, usually fires right up.

Methinks rain water's leaked, killing spark, so I've some sleuthing to do.

What common sources of water infiltration are likely needing sealed against rain's intrusion?

I'm looking askance at front mount coil, as the "usual suspect", being most exposed to the elements?
