I've seen an engine with no spark run on starting fluid before. but it was a diesel :lol:
I'm not trying to suggest elaborate or expensive things to try.. not real convinced it's a coil problem either. Just putting ideas out there that can be tested to narrow down the problem. Spraying ether into the intake vs. compressed air onto the coil seem pretty similar in terms of complexity, thought the latter is probably kinder to the engine.
The fact that it starts fine but shuts off after five minutes seems like an interesting clue. Good luck with the tractor, and by all means keep us posted on whatever you learn while getting it back into running condition!
