Customer Question

I have a JD "G" (unstyled) that pops and misses after starting. If you remove either one of the plug wires it will run steady on one cyl. You can short/ground the removed plug wire with no change. Any ideas as what to look for?

The govenor has been rebuilt but the engine runs erattic with both plug wires connected. Seems to have a good spark when testing to ground. Plug wires and ends look OK.

First you will want to replace the spark plugs and wires along with the distributor cap and rotor for a tune up. At the same time you can test your compression and verify the timing is in spec. If ok then also be sure the carburetor is clean and the fuel pump if not gravity fed on yours is good with no leaks in the fuel lines. Let me know
