Glad to hear you got it running good. It sounds like you are having some detonation under a load and you are correct that you need to set the timing. Here is the way I do it. Find the 2 timing marks on the pulley and put a bit of white paint on them. Loosen the two 1/2" bolts that hold the distributor down just enough so you can twist it. Connect timing light start engine and run it up to full throttle or close to it and adj timing to the first mark which is 16 degrees before top dead center. Then pull the engine back to idle and the timing should be at or very near the second mark that is TDC. The timing at full throttle is more important than the idle setting. If the timing stays at the first mark the centrifugal advance is not working. Usually because the weights under the point plate are rusted and stuck. Be sure to tighten the distributor hold down bolts after the timing is set. The manual has RPM settings to set the timing at but unless you have different springs you can't change the advance curve so just check at full throttle and idle. You don't need a tach to set the timing. If the timing is correct you should not have the clicking noise.

I adjusted the timing and now the tractor seems to run fine. Thank you all again for your help.
