hanks! to all who responded to my request for advice on repairing my old 9N Mutt. After replacing all ignition elements. cleaning all filters,and worrying over my tractor for a week or ten days attempting to start it.I had checked all electrical connections I finally bought a spark plug tester. I checked the plugs this morning and had a healthy spark on all cylinders. Suddenly my attention was drawn to the ground connection for the battery and thought, "That's the only thing we haven't checked." We cleaned that connection up and turned the key on and hit the starter. That old rascal fired right up and was hitting on all cylinders and is in my field right now mowing.
THANKS FELLAS. GOES TO SHOW THAT A BADGE TOTING OLD MARINE CAN GET LUCKY ONCE IN A WHILE. Jim Mortensen
