Thanks Jock. Great information.You are right about the aftermarket distributor. Mine is an aftermarket but the box says "made in USA". I noticed that when I got the timing set, the adjustment was far from its center point and was towards one extreme. I guess the main thing is it is timed.
A few years ago, the ear of my original distributor broke because the bolts loosened over the years. My brother welded the ear back on. Although he did a great job and it lined up on the engine, it was not exact and could not be timed properly. I set it as close as I could but was still far off. The performance of the tractor was hampered and I decided to finally fix it right.
