Point gap = .025"
spark plug gap = .025"
Jump a wire from the (-)battery post (the one going to the starter) over to the (-) wire going to your coil. This will bypass your ignition switch and other sources of electrical problems. MAKE SURE THE TRACTOR IS IN NEUTRAL or you"re in the seat when you try it. Make sure it"s spinning when you pull the choke so as not to foul the plugs. If plugs are fouled; try a dry set or take a propane torch and dry the ones you just took out. replace them and try again. I don"t know the carb settings. Some one else might. If you have fuel running out the plug on the bottom of the carb when you open it; you may still have plugged passages. I don"t usually advocate starting ether but a little spritz in the carb throat will get it to run after a fashion for a brief period if you have no fuel making it past the carb. At this point you"ll know if it runs whether you have a fuel problem or, if it don"t run, an ignition problem.
Good luck.

I forgot to mention that your connections need to be clean and tight, too.
