Morning. I have a 1966 cub lo boy. I bought 2 years ago , now as a retiree. since it was what I had as a boy on our farm. Ran generally ok (fixed a couple of things on it each season) . Now when I tried it this month (to make sure battery is ok etx ). It won’t start. Battery turns it over fine . I thought maybe carb issue. Since I had problems with that last season going up hills. (It would conked out). But sun jn law suggested first check the electrical. So he lent me that spark tester thing that plugs into plug and should light up if there is a spark. and looks like no spark at any plug .nothing lights up As an armature. What do and how do I test next few steps ? Or just start replacing stuff (I saw you tube on replacing points and such. And that all scares me - I’ll mess that up for sure So just by replacements something instead ??)). I’ll try here to give some pictures. Of tractor. The tester that didn’t light up when I tested the plugs.(guess I don’t have a pic of that. You know what I mean I’m sure ) And the electrical parts . Thanks ! For any good advice for a handy guy who normally doesn’t have his repairs go as planned ever .
