I may be guilty of excessive choking. I am adressing one issue at a time so as not to fail to hold all things equal. The next time this engine starts, I'm going to remove the gas cap to see if the problem could be caused by a lack of proper venting. This, however, would not explain the fuel-fouled plugs.

Dean, I've cleaned and gapped the plugs a few times over the past week. I have recently been able to get it started, and it runs well at low idle. The engine starts to roll and dies at 3/4 throttle. This has been the case the four times that I've managed to start it. The low idle screw is out one turn. I've tried again with the high idle out 2 turns, as my tractor mechanic suggested, and also out 1 1/4 turns as the manual suggests with no success. Once it dies, I have only been able to restart after cleaning the badly fuel-fouled plugs. HELP:)
