I tried a direct connection between the battery and the coil and it still didn't work. I spent half a day toiling with the coil and the electronic ignition and it got me no where. Then a friend came over. He is an 80 year old tractor lover with more than ten tractors of different kinds in his barns. He didn't like my electronic ignition conversion and urged me to go to Nappa to buy the condenser and point to replaced the ones that i have. Since I was running out of option so I listened to him. After swapping out the electronic ignition then the tractor is working again. I am so happy to see the tractor running again. I would have like the electronic ignition better because it is simpler and doesn't require much maintenance but at this point I just need to have my tractor back working again.
