Scott, Sounds like the float is sticking in carb. The main jet at bottom might also be plugged.I would pull carb and since it is off get a rebuild kit.Are you getting spark Scott? Also if it were me I would pull valve cover and make sure all the valves move freely. My $.02 Worth Justin NY

Sounds like an obvious thing, but always drain engine oil and add new before cracking an engine that's been sitting outside. There's always a chance that water has gotten into the crankcase and what would otherwise be a good running engine is damaged during the first start-up. I agree with the other post about the air cleaner and cleaning it and adding new oil. I've found birdnests, rat nests and live mice inside these air cleaners.

Once you get the ignition and carb working and she's running, then drain the rear end and tranny and add new lube here too.

I had the same problem. I replaced points, condensor, plugs and wires, etc. Still would not fire. I needed to lengthen the amall wire between the coil and the distributor. When I redid it, the tractor fired like new.
Hope this helps
