Bruce is 100% right. Troubleshoot. Narrow down what it isn't to find what may be contributing to the problem. Nearly all of my tractor problems come down to maintenance that I've let slide. The great thing about that is it almost never requires parts to fix one of these tractors. Is anyone else thinking an Electronic Distributor on a 6 Volt Tractor could be having problems with less than optimal voltage? The 6 volt system requires battery terminals, connections, and wire terminals to be clean and shiny. That may be even more important for an electronic module to function well. Checking voltages with a meter is one way to locate bad connections, or a bad ignition switch. The low-tech approach is to just take connections loose and make them clean and shiny. Don't forget to do both ends of both battery cables and make sure they are proper tractor cables, not skinny battery cables for a car. In many cases, new parts just create new problems.
