Engine Performance problem
1973 Questions for all other cars 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual lots miles
Actually it's my Allis Chalmers loader/tractor. A mod. 615 ind. The wife says I love that tractor more than her.
The engine (an A.C. 160 power crater industrial), is running rough.
In trying to check the dwell (spec'ed for 24 BTDC) - (note: it has a oem 4 cyl. 'Gas' engine w/all Delco ignition components).
I could not adjust a reading below 29-to-30 degrees dwell no matter what rotation of the distributer?
I was checking the dwell with a new Actron DMM auto service meter (w/dwell). First time i've used it. Can only assume it is accurate, (having it tested now).
Assuming meter is correct (i.E. Little to no adjustment range of timing dwell - rough running), what in the world could be causing that sort of symptom?
Thanks Rob Harris
have the same problem?
