Hey folks..looking for info on this little 184 I have(some call it a low boy)I put points in it..cleaned out the carb and still cant get it to fire off..although it puffs like it wants to start..It has a flat head 4 cyl with what I call and updraft carb on it..anyone know what type engine this is..or what the firing order might be?(when I got it the dist cap was off of it..not sure what might have been done to it.Thank you all!IMG_20160330_170045_zps5obptmhp.jpgIMG_20160330_170006_zpsicwbqauq.jpg

The cub Lo boys were yellow and white.  The red 184's were after that series.  When I was in the Parks Service I ran several of the Lo boys from the off set steering wheel to the more fat tired squatty type tractors.  My guess on the firing order would be 1-4-3-2 but not sure on that.  Most gas IH tractor are that way.

Low boy production started in 55 and they were all red back then.  The engine in there is an IH C-60.  It is a 60 cube flat head 4.  The firing order on it is 1-3-4-2.  The number 1 position on the distributor cap should be the one on the top away from the engine block.

 

1-4-3-2 is a common firing order on older Allis Chalmers tractors like the WC and WD.

 

Do you have a nice blue spark at the plugs?  Does it have new plugs?  The updraft carb should be an IH but could also be an aftermarket "copy".

Not a problem sir.  I am currently redoing the transmission in my dads low boy serial number 1545J.  The 1044th one off the line.  Got her on the bench redoing all the seals and replacing second gear due to a broken tooth.

I stand corrected then.  I started mowing with one in 65 and that was the white and yellow off set tractor.  Newer ones were also white and yellow.  Never seen a red Cub Lo Boy.  Your right on the firing order.  I got two numbers turned around.

Nice..I dont know much about them..this one was a freebie..said it run when parked..but the solenoid went bad so they got a zero turn..turns out it was the PTO switch is what went bad..not the solenoid...I replaced it..cranks over fine now.
