The ability to detect, observe, and measure electricity is crucial when trying to understand how a tractor works and learning what you can do to fix it. The digital multi-meter is like a doctor’s stethoscope. It allows us to see the invisible force of electricity and measure how it interacts with the components in our engines and tractors. A digital multi-meter measures current (amps), voltage (volts), and resistance (ohms).
As your engine turns, the camshaft pushes your breaker points open, which creates a high voltage induction in your ignition coil. This high voltage power runs through your spark plug igniting your engine. Residual electricity in your ignition coil’s primary circuit is absorbed by the condenser.
A hydraulic system is a simple, space efficient way of multiplying and transferring your engine’s power to multiple applications for your tractor. By utilizing hydraulics you can build a front end loader, backhoe, 3 point hitch, 3 way plow, a dump trailer and much more. The limits are in your imagination.
The purpose of an internal combustion engine is to transform chemical energy into mechanical energy. This is accomplished by igniting an air/fuel mixture that causes a shaft to rotate. We then use this rotating shaft to create useful work.
