And I was off on the year it's a 1963
Do these have a timing chain or are they gear to gear
And what would the chance of it "jumping a tooth"

Your trouble with the timing reminds me of one of these I ran into years ago--tore it down to check gear keys-found the cam gear [aluminum] had a steel hub that had turned loose, floating around.

Timing gears, no chain.

Extremely unlikely the cam is out of time.

But if you want to check, pull the valve cover, set the crank at TDC. Watch the #1 and #4 rockers. While rocking the crank slightly back and forth, you will see which set of rockers is in the overlap position, when the ex is closing and the in is opening. Split the difference when both are closed. The crank should be at TDC.

that was my last option to what may be wrong after thinking there is a short heavy duty looking spring that is connected to the hand throttle and not sure where other end goes i wanna say with the research i have done it may possibly be the gov spring but i don't think that will cause the tractor to have to be advanced as high up as it is its almost as high as it will go just to start
