Transmission is probably fine, tires spinning backwards when attempting to pull is pretty common.

If you try to pull start it, you should try in the highest gear reasonably possible.

If it has sat that long there are some things I would do before trying to start it.

Take the spark plugs out and pour the cylinders full of transmission fluid and let

it soak a few days to loosen up the rings. Put the plugs back in to keep junk out.

After a few days take the plugs out and roll it over to blow any remaining ATF out.

Drain the old gas and replace with new.

Make sure you have gas flowing to and through the carb by taking the plug out of the bottom.

Clean and re-gap the points.

Charge or replace the battery. If your C has a magneto it will start without the battery

but if it has a coil/distributor ignition, it still needs battery power to start.

Folks over on the Farmall board may have more specific information on that model.

Good luck! :)

Thanks for your input. Another thing that was crazy was I went to jump start the tractor today and the red cable went to the POS and the black went to the NEG. Only prob is that the Red cable is hooked to the frame and the black is hooked to the starter. I beleive this tractor is a 6V system. I think the cables are reversed for some reason. Shouldn't the red be on the starter and black be on the frame? Someone painted them incorrectly I assume. Is it safe to hook my POS jumper cable to the starter and the NEG to the frame and try to start after I do the other things you said? Also, about the tires spinning backwards. After the fisrt run, the right tire wouldn't budge when the clutch was released. It just skidded. I am not mechanical, but just want my tractor to run again. I have been deployed to Afghanistan and haven't been donig proper maint the past year or two. Thanks for your time.

Your farmall C is 6V positive ground. Nothing crazy or unusual about that. Next time you want to pull start your tractor, put it in 4th gear, get it rolling and let the clutch out, please be careful.
