It was running fine last week..... can lack of air in the tyre suck the tricity out of the spark plugs.
Thanks Jarrod, I killed that thingy in my O bedford it was 6 volt but I ran it 12 volt for years, one day no go. Don't know how I worked it out, must have had blinding inspiration, I suspect the loader was originally 6 volt too, and wondered if 20 years of 12 volt might have caused the same problem. Not being waterproof, I won't be going out today to check.
Found some sunshine, what to do, the tractor is parked next to the loader, hmm mm, jumper leads, fuel on, one more try, whhrrrr whrrrrrBBRRRmmmmmm ........ did someone say most electrical problems are fuel...... I did nothing, different,and it's purring.
Thanks for all the advice. Now to bench some wood.
Check the wear in the distributor camshaft...this was an issue with forklifts ,the point gap would change and engines would have zero power,push the shaft over ,and they run perfectly ...for a while......Some distributors like Lucas have a ball bearing and are easily fixed ,Delco s generally cant without much expense of having shafts rebuilt.
