" When making a post like this, it is always a good idea to let the reader know up front what it is you are talking about as far as make, model, year, and any other pertinent information regarding your subject, regardless if you listed it in a prior post. "
I recall a post a few years go on the YT board when someone asked for advice on setting the points. The very first reply said to pull the distributor, it will only go back one way, off-set tang, so put in on the bench, yada-yada. Apparently the poster did exactly as told, because a day or so later he was back saying the tractor wouldn't start, was backfiring, etc. It took a few more replies to figure out that he had a sidemount distributor.
