He was a bear to crank over so it was a trial for me to set the mag timing by myself. A few weeks back I had a helper and we belted him up to the Beaver tractor and ran him over for an hour or more. That made a world of difference with the new rings and getting everything fully oiled. We were able to make fire then but it would only run a few seconds. Seemed very late or would not come out of impulse.
Used the manual you copied and went at the magneto system today. In the manual it says to bring #1 to tdc until the impulse snaps and then turn the crankshaft backwards until the mark on the fan pulley is 11 inches from a certain point on the frame! I couldn't find a mark and so used the center of the pulley as the mark and backed it up accordingly and then timed the mag to that. That seemed to do the trick but it may not be 100% yet. In lieu of not having that mark, what is the proceedure or degrees of rotation to use to make a mark? Since I have to take the rad off, that will be the time to fine tune things.
Thanks.
RM
From what I have seen that mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned to show TDC. So you did the right thing by just making a mark at the top when at TDC on #1 cylinder (Or I guess any cylinder you are working with).

I would not know what degrees of timing I have been running. Usually just keep messing around until it sounds to be running good. It would be nice to double check the timing if I ever get time as there is a major difference in sound and characteristics between our OK and K. Both of them make good power just act really different.

Was planning to try some ploughing but the beans are still partly green and won't be off for a while yet. Chances are he'll no-till wheat right into the beans as soon as they come off. Probably shouldn't plough through his wheat!
Thanks TS. I assume you turn the crank back and set the mag to compensate while running for the extra retard of the impulse. Only ever had one other tractor with a rad hose connection to the mag, another GS&M Beaver that I restored years ago. But it used a Dixie mag with their standard hand-trip impulse so it was very straight forward. Never knew there were built-in-motor impulses 'till I started taking the Wallis apart!
Aloha,
RM

Congratulations on getting her running Rick,

The mark on the pulley as Tom described is the TDC mark, which is usually a good starting point to then follow the instructions in the manual. It seems complicated at first, the more you do the easier it is to remember.
Last night I timed a 12-20 which again had no mark on the pulley, so off with the rocker cover, watch #1 inlet valve open, then bring the piston up to TDC and mark the fan pulley, then back up slightly and install impulse, fully andvance magneto and install with rubber coupling, make sure points are about to break open on #1 lead.
Gas in the tank and she started up on the fourth pull, but as Tom described it sounded to be running hard even with the spark advanced on the mag, so loosened off the impulse bolts and andvanced the gear one tooth, it made all the difference when started up again, ran as smooth and easy as an old bird.
The stak music lets you know when they are timed right.

Malcolm

Well, it is encouraging to know I stumbled on to the right track - I am not the brightest bulb in the socket you know. But when I hear from guys like TSeaberg and Malcolm that things are ok, it makes my noggin' spin a bit. I have now had the pleasure to have met both of those men. They are first class guys!
Thanks guys.

Pulled the rad off today and cleaned it up for further repair. I did find the marks on the fan belt pulley. There are at least three little pips in a row on the face of the pulley matching up with #1 tdc. Hadn't seen them before as they are fairly faint from belt wear on the pulley.

Started on second crank! Still not running great though. It is firing on all 4 but has a kinda skip. I adjusted a couple of intakes a little closer but never ran her after that. Any thoughts? I am considering - valve springs may be weak, air leak in the pre-heater on intake? Another possibility is that when I ordered a new head gasket from Olson's, they also sent new manifold gaskets. I am wondering if the intake portion is not sealing as well as it should. The originals had all those rings n' stuff.
It does settle in better when driving around and with the fuel a little to the rich side.

Holding antifreeze now. Probably won't do much more to him this fall. If they ever get the beans off, it would be nice to give him a good, long run through the fields. Those lugs sure do some grousing!

Pulled the hitch off the Massey-Harris plow I want to use with the Wallis. It is the same as the hitch shown below. Does anyone have drawings of the workings of one or can tell me how they work?
What goes on the top, a spring perhaps, to keep that swinging segment up and the hitch part locked in place. This one must be missing something.
Thanks,
RM.

Thanks Tom,
That hitch was something I was supposed to check out at shows this summer and neglected to do! This one is missing the roller inside for sure now that I see the drawings. Interesting, we do business with Holland Hitch at their Woodstock, Ontario plant!
Aloha,
RM

I had to repair my Holland hitch, but I just needed to put a new inner jaw spring in place. If nothing else, you should be able to turn down a piece of steel in the lathe for the roller.

That sure was a nice, clean Wallis to pick up. I love it just the way it is!
