Electronic Ignition Upgrades For Vintage Tractors
Diamond Farm Tractor Parts of Brighton, Ontario says their carburetors and electronic ignition upgrades are a big hit with antique tractor owners.
Operations Manager, Shawn Van Meeuwen, says all they need to know to get an upgrade started is the distributor number and whether you have a 6 or 12-volt system. Then its a simple matter to remove the points and condenser from the distributor and install a small plate inside with the attaching wire.
He explains the original copper-based engine wires need to be swapped out plus the coil must be upgraded to a hot or super coil. Beyond this, no other parts need to be replaced.
Its not hard to make it work and its straightforward to change. All standard stuff, says Van Meeuwen. You never have to change your points again. Instructions come with the kits, but you dont have to be a super mechanic to get it done, just have basic knowledge of the tractors.
Their in-stock parts target the Ford 2N, 8N and 9N tractors to improve performance over the originally installed equipment. They can supply kits for many other tractor models as well.
The carburetors are sold for $200. The electronic ignition kit is $25 for the wire set and $60 for the upgraded coil. Complete kits sell for $280 Canadian.
