Pull out the plugs, place your thumb over #1 hole. Rotate the engine by hand until you feel the compression. Pull the dist cap and the rotor will be pointing at #1 on the cap.

Here is where I am.
I have spark to every plug. I have compression at every spark plug hole. Set # 1 cylinder to the top of its cycle and read TD on the flywheel. Rotor was pointing to the bottom right wire coming out of the distributor cap. Ran that one to the cylinder closest to the fan and went clockwise around the distributor using the firing order on the block behind the distributor.

Would not even fire. Drained old gas and filled with new. Would not fire. Removed carb (which was dry as a bone due to the float being stuck closed). Placed hand over intake manifold hole, cranked the engine and had good suction. Sprayed ether directly into the intake and did not fire.

I really am at a loss as to the problem. I had a knowledgeable guy from Englend email me a wiring diagram for this tractor last year. Since then, I had to re-register and no longer remember who it was for sure. I've also mis-placed the diagram I printed. I rewired the tractor according to his diagram, but I'm worried I might have something incorrectly routed. It has a 3 pole alternator on it and a 12v coil.

I guess the flywheel would read "DC" when at the top of the exhaust stroke too wouldn't it?
