In addition to RAB's comments, I'd suggest one other thing. If you have access to another tractor with a belt pulley, and a belt, I'd belt start the 15-30. With the gas turned off, have the tractor in neutral, clutch depressed, and start the belt rolling, once up to speed, slowly let out the clutch until the motor starts turning over. Let the engine get some revolutions, giving the oil a chance to circulate, then turn on the gas, and she should run.

Brian I considered belt starting my 15 30 but when I engage the pulley it still free wheels . I thought there was a problem with the pulley gear so I checked my fathers 10 20 and it does the same thing. I know my fathers pulley is good because he uses it on his threshing machine every year . When you engage the pulley with the engine not running should it not lock up to the engine? thanks Mike

Check for fuel. Fresh will be better than stale (that"s if there is any in it). Check valve is in "on" position. Check any fuel filter in the line.
Check for spark - if it is gas
Check for sticking valves (not likely the immediate problem).
Check for compression - rings may be stuck and bores dry after that long.
Check that nothing has unfortunately broken or stuck since it last ran (eg throttle, inlet manifold [or gasket]).
One last thing check the oil and make sure it has some lube circulating BEFORE starting it up - running on dry bearings will not be good for the engine!
Check ignition cut-off if it has one.
All normal everyday things like these should help you locate and perhaps fix the reason for non-starting.
