Any chance you have another tractor available to start it via the belt pulley? Mag set right? Have you had it running AT ALL since you've finished the restoration?

Nope, haven't been able to get it started since I thought I had it finished about 6 weeks ago. I have been thinking of hooking it to my Ferguson TO-20 for which I have a belt pulley attachment that I've never tried using. Advantages or disadvantages over just hooking a chain to it and pulling it down the lane as suggested below?

I thought the magneto was set OK, but I am now wondering if, despite its just being rebuilt, maybe there isn't a hot enough spark. How to check?

Remove plugs an eighter have a good ground on one or remove plug wire an hold close to block an watch for spark while some one cranks it.Might want to use gloves while holding wire. Also you should hear impulse click same time spark happens.

Magneto spark should jump almost i/2 inch if held that far away from engine block. It should be blue spark. If it is only yellow it is weak.Also i would turn off gasoline supply --remove plugs an check gap-have them dry an than crank tractor couple turns to clear out old gas .Than turn on gas-pull choke an pull through until each piston has fired an than open chokee halfway an you should get it startsd.Pulling would be good idea.That would keep you from getting arm broken as while i have cranked sc an dc many times i sure dont think a kickback on crank ow a l would be very healthy for arms!!

If you belt it to another tractor you can check for spark while it is turning over and make sure it has oil pressure.
