Thanks guys I appreciate all the good info. I'm going to check the points this weekend. It's running like garbage currently but I attribute that to it being a south Texas tractor that was transplanted to northern Kansas in sub zero temps.

Once again I appreciate the info.
I have the tractor running at idle but it seems to be missing. When I advance the throttle to high RPM it runs decent for a bit but when warm I can't bring the throttle back down or it will rev from high to low and eventually die. On a possibly related note, quite a bit of fuel (a puddle) is leaking from the carb when the tractor is off from what appears to be the throttle linkage. I'm assuming it needs a carb rebuild but I didn't know if the missing and inability to go to low rpm is mostly spark related.

As Royce said good to shut the gas off when not running or you can get gas in the oil and that can mean an engine rebuild. If in fact the leak is at the throttle shaft that is a vacuum leak and that will cause odd problems and needs fixed
