The light switch controls the lights and the charging system... The ignition is completely seperate. You probably have an on- off switch or a key ? To get it to start you you need a power wire to the coil. Since you are positive ground, the negative is your "hot" wire. What i would do is disconnect the "hot" wire to the light switch and tape it or remove it. You need a "hot" (negative) wire running to the ignition coil, then a wire from the coil + terminal to the distributor point. The point is grounded + to complete the circuit. Second, you need a way to crank the motor. Do you have a switch on the starter and a push rod, or do you have a solenoid and push button. IF you have the push rod, that is very simple and you should be able to start the tractor. Leave the light switch disconnected (no charging or lights) and get the ignition fixed first.. I would guess you ahve a couple wires switch wrong on the light switch. If the resistor is hot, then you have ground on one side and power on the other side. You getting your + and - wires mixed up due to being a positive ground system.

the drawing below is very simple. THe resistor is part of the light switch you talk about. The light section has been left off this drawing. Note that the reistor has nothing to do with the power wire. It is a ground only. you have two wires mixed up on the light switch.
