You say your running off water tank. Have you plumbed the water tank to the kerosene compartment and needle valve on carb? If running fuel from water tank to water feed compartment on carb, that may be your problem as it will only draw very little liquid from this compartment unless under load. As there is very little vacuum when not pulling load. I know on the E,F and B that have the sliding throttle plate it works that way, you have to have fuel plumbed to kerosene compartment on carb not the water compartment. Thanks for listening. Hope you get it solved. DJ

Is the camshaft ok? Are the valves acting properly? You haven’t got it parked to close to the Sawyer Massey have you? those Sawyer ghosts can get a bit moody.

Donald J,

Thanks for the reply. Yes we are plumbed to the kerosene side of the carb.

Cheers, Harold

Hi David,
It is far away from the Sawyer...it is parked next to our George White Steam Engine though,

I know colliding worlds.

Well, first Off I would like to thank everyone for taking an interest in my Rumley Situation.

I am happy to say it is running fine again.

We took the mag off an found it was only sparking when the impulse was tripping, when it ran fast, there was no spark. After much investigation the only thing we found was that the condenser wire had come off the coil. We soldered it back on and it still acted the same way. We pieced together a mag from parts and it works fine now.

We then re-assembled the old mag and it acts fine as well, So I can not explain exactly what caused the mag to turn the oil pull into a hit and miss tractor.

The only thing I can think of is the ground brush on the bottom of the mag was stuck. or some how it was grounding through the impulse detents.

It was an enjoyable day spent with the local magneto magician and although the puzzle has not been completely solved, the outcome is wonderful.

Thanks, Harold

I've heard 90 percent of all fuel problems are electrical.
