Squirt a little gas in one or two of the plug holes, put the plugs back in an see if it will fire, if it does the problem is the carb, if not bring #1 to top dead center after compresion and check the firing order.

Have you checked for compression. If it has been sitting for a long while it may have some stuck open valves. This has happened to my neighbors WF. If you're getting compression, check to see if the plugs are getting wet with gas. If not the needle valve in the carb may be stuck shut with a little varnish from old gas. Generally a rap on the side of the carb bowl with a soft face hammer will set it free.

Good luck....

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
