It looks like you're firing TDC on # 4,your dist rotates clockwise so take #1 wire and move it clockwise 1 terminal,10 O'clock?take #2 cyl. wire and put it in the next terminal CW and to #2 plug,take # 4 cyl. wire and put it in the 4-5 o'clock position and attach it to # 4 cyl. put the 8 o'clock wire on and attach to # 3 cyl. loosen the dist. enough to rotate it as you try starting the tractor,if you have fire to all plugs it should start,hope this makes sense to you.

It seems that your rotor clip is pointing to #4 plug. the brass end will send the current to #4.

rotate the dist. to #1 which is 180 from there and re attach your cap.

you were shown the correct set up yesterday with another f-2000.

firing order is 1 2 4 3 with #1 being at the front of the tractor.

#1 on the distr. is directly opposite from the #4 you have shown.

if this does not work then pull your plugs and rotate the motor until you find compression on #1 piston. at that point you should have tdc on that piston AND you should have the correct location for #1 on the distr.
reinstall the plugs and put the cap back on and it should fire up.

No wonder the poor guy is confused with such conflicting information. Do not rotate the distributor base. It was running before, so it is only a matter of getting wires back the way they were.
