To Keep From Burning Up Points
Fred Welton, Grove City, Penn.: I have a 1939 Ford 9N tractor and a 1952 Deere A tractor. Both of these tractors were constantly burning up points. New points would last only 3 or 4 hrs. of working time. Both of these tractors have been converted from 6 volts to 12 volts, causing too much voltage to go through the distributor. A simple fix is a +/- 5 resistor wired in-line between the key switch and the coil. These can be bought at some auto parts stores or from online suppliers. Saves a lot of aggravation and time. This is not a new idea but a lot of people dont know about it.
