  • Big 40G problem

    Hello all,
    I have a 93 Big 40G with the 3 cylinder TM20. I have 1244 hours on the machine. I started it yesterday and it ran for about 30 seconds and died. I went out to start it today and I would fire and run for about 10 seconds and would not start again. After letting it set for about an hour it would do the same thing. It is getting fuel. I pulled the cap off. The contacts have been worn almost completely away and the rotor has been rubbing on the top of the cap. The ribs that are molded have been rubbed complete away.

    I would believe this is the problem. Any other ideas are more than welcome.

    Thanks,
    Casey

    That's the Continental engine right?
    is there a bunch of side to side movement in the distributor shaft. Reason I ask is that they used to use that Engine in skid steers and we see a lot of distributors bushing wearing out and causing what your describing.

      Yes it is the 3 cylinder TM20. I have seen the same thing. This one is tight side to side. This why I am struggling with it in my mind. I am picking up the cap and rotor in the morning. I guess we will see.

      Thanks,
