What is the voltage at the terminal on the distributor? Tractor should have a resistor that cuts the voltage to the distributor. If you get full battery voltage, the resistor is not in the circuit. The condenser and pints burn out much quicker if it gets full battery voltage. Is tractor still 6 volts, or has it been converted to 12 volts?
