id take points , condenser, and plugs with you, maybe some electrical wire and terminal ends, pull the distributor, 2 bolts, 1 wire, keep them in order side to side, the distributor will only fit one way when you go back and that way you have it out where you can see something, im betting its flooded, fouled the plugs due to something in the distributor touching ground,or the little pigtail spring isnt making contact from the coil , a common problem if somebody tried to install points ect with the distributor on the engine, also pull the plug on the bottom of the carb with the sediment bowl turned on, to verify fuel flow, if no fuel, there should be 3 screens if somebody hasnt been at it, one in the carb elbow, 1 in the sediment bowl, and one on top of the shut off valve inside the gas tank, if it has these and a add on inline filter throw the inline away, unless its a filter for a motorcycle or lawn mower the inline filters are designed to be run on a pressurized fuel system, the n is a gravity feed system, and the screens are enough to clean the fuel.if that doesnt have it running post back [ either way] and we'll dig into it deeper, the N tractor is about as simple as it gets mechanical wise and isnt hard to fix

your right i didnt have my eyes open enough to see that was a side mount, do not pull the distributor ,you can work on these where they are, but do bring what i posted ,thats stuff will cover most of the likely causes of a n tractor no start,if it was running before and recently , the one exception is if the ignition switch itself is bad, which we'll talk you thru if the other things dont fix it, the most likely cause is no fuel in the carb due to clogged screens followed by flooded plugs, if fuel is present in the carb, the flooded plugs may be caused by too much choke or something grounded in the distributor,causing no spark, the electric wire and terminals are in case you find a damaged wire in the system, its possible,and you dont want a parts trip for a 4 dollar roll of wire , lets us know what you find out there are many here who can help you and talk you thru virtually anything you find
