It may be a long shot, but I'll share my experience with my '51 TO30. It would be an easy fix if it's your problem. My tractor quit starting for me with the gear shift--it wouldn't turn over at all. But when I jumped the starter from the battery it started almost immediately.
I thought the starter switch might be bad, but first I pulled the wires off the switch. I polished everything up really cleanly and covered it all with dialectric grease. It now turns over rapidly and starts easily.
I converted it to 12 volts some years ago. Many talk about "clean and bright" connections for the 6 volt tractors, but it's also true for 12 volts.
