Hello, my name is ***** ***** I can help you with your question.

I have several Farmall H's and M's on the farm as they make great tractors for shuttling equipment around or other odd jobs. When switching the tractor over to 12 volt there should have been a resistor added between the ignition switch and the distributer. The resistor should look like a white rectangular cube about 1/2" x 1/2" x 2". The resistor drops the voltage at the distributor down so that it is between 6 and 9 volts. I would suggest checking to make sure your tractor is equipted with the resistor and then inspect the distributor cap and rotor. If both look good then it may be time for new points and condenser.

If you are still having trouble let me know as I will gladly assist you with further diagnostics.

Thanks,
Kevin
