If the starter isn't jammed pull all the sparkplugs and see if any liquid is on top of the pistons. Borrow a borescope light and look in all the cylinders for rust. Since it won't turn over your engine may be seized from rust. Hal

If you find that the starter was jammed, a replacement starter drive is available that is much better than the old style. The main difference is the replacement of the drive spring with a better cushion based pinion, and smaller spring.
How did the other information given you on prior posts work out? Letting us know what fixed your tractor's problems is important to all on the forum. Jim

If you accidentally left the fuel on, and it filled one or more cylinders with fuel it will not allow the engine to turn. Check the oil for gasoline smell.
Also do not pull start a locked engine it is a sure way to bend a connecting rod, or break a crankshaft.

Yup the starter drive is locked to the flywheel just do as other post said loosen the bolts on the starter and wiggle the starter the bendix should release. Check all batt connections as a weak voltage can cause the starter to lockup pretty easy mite need a new Bendix.

As they said, all that is required is to loosen the bolts, probably three at the most, that hold the starter on. The tractor would not need taking apart.

If when you tried to pull start it it wouldn't turn over(wheels slid) something must be locked up . Might try loostening starter to see if stuck in flywheel.
