I wouldn't change back from the variable governor control. Originally it only had the governor control the full throttle position. You had only full throttle controlled by the gov, every lower speed was controlled by the hand lever so the tractor was a bit clumsy to use for light chores. The variable gov makes it much more operator friendly.

Music to my ears

7 minutes of video. Kind of boring except the beginning.
You can hear the cylinders start to come to life at the 2:15 and 3:30 mark.

Crank starting a 425 cubic inch four cylinder tractor. Abs, back, shoulders, legs, ribs... I'm gonna be sore tomorrow. So worth it

I'm having trouble uploading the video to photobucket. For now let's see if the youtube link below works. Let me know if it doesn't open. I'll try to reload photobucket tomorrow and repost it.

After watching the interesting video you posted I can hear 2 or maybe 3 problems:

1. There is 1 cylinder misfiring. It is only running on 3 cylinders.

2. The magneto timing is retarded too far. Try advancing it.

3. The main jet setting on the carb may be set too lean but don't monkey with that until you address the first two problems.

Good Luck

Thanks for the info. Well appreciated.

Couldn't find any plugs today. Local NAPA is open tomorrow. Will try there.

I know timing is off. Between carb being thrown together, not knowing where to set the timing on one of these, not having a guide or book, and never working on an old hand crank tractor... I'm learning as I go along.
This is the very first attempt at something new with no instruction.

As for mag timing being too far retarded...
the lever in the full counter clockwise position is ?
I assume retarded.
Pushed all the way up (in a clockwise movement) is advanced?

Or do I have that backwards?

From the seat, the lever up is retarded and down is advanced. All the way up should be kill, when crank starting i run the mag all the way up then down enough to take it off kill, should always be started retarded.
Thanks for the video and congrats, you will get it starting and running well yet.
My first tractor was a 22-36, got it running in 1984. It ran just like that, even managed to get it to the show that way. At the time i didn't have a book, and knew something was wrong. At the show two IH guys looked it over and found i had two plug wires in the wrong spot.
Ran beautifull after that, heck, we threshed a lil with it just this year.
My transmission i think has a rough bearing now, sounds like. And the side curtain rubbed a leak in the pot metal oil filter base this year, shoulda seen that coming.

Thanks Russ! You're a life saver.
I had it backwards. I was lead to believe retarded was down and advanced was up.

I'll be back at it tomorrow. Hopefully find plugs to install and eliminate that part of the equation.

I'm pretty excited about getting this thing going and getting in on the vintage tractor pull at Pioneer Days in less than two weeks. And it's only 23 miles from my home.

The timing is pretty easy to do by the book, but you have to follow the procedure religiously.
It will run too hot retarded in most cases.
