Spark has to have blue snot authority. Nothing less. If that spark is orange, it ain't going to start until it warms up. Condensor, points, coil, plugs. Heavy cable connections to battery. Clean, bright, tight. It'll be good to 40 below. If it gets colder than that, you'll start to have other problems. Gassers don't need block heaters if they're properly maintained but if you want to install one, go ahead. I'm assuming that the tractor was running OK until it got cold?

Couldn"t get her going this morning. Not even that cold 32. Put the block heater on. Waited. Still couldn"t get her started. Took the fuel line off blew it out with carb cleaner. Drained out the carb. sprayed carb cleaner into the carb. Put the hose back. So for the hell of it I took off again the positive battery terminal. Cleaned the hell out it. Put it all back & boom away she went. I dont know if it was sheer luck or the terminal was dirty. I"ll see what happens tomorrow morning.
