Ran into some ignition problems and found that points are NLA for these old opposed twins.  Had decent compression so spent the bucks and put in the Magnetron ignition system.  Runs better, smoother, more responsive and over all well worth the $50+.   Also got the parts to build the rest of the 3 point today.  The rock shaft with lift and the anchor for the center link was on the tractor.  Got the 4 ball ends for the lower arms and the center link today.  Will check in the morning to see when we can get it in the welding shop to build the lower arms and lift arms.  Be my first GT with a 3 point though have had big tractors with 3 point and fast hitch.  Fast hitch was a dream to use - IF you unhooked on level ground.  If you didn't it was a fight to get hooked back up again.
