My $.02 cents worth, are you sure you have full flow of fuel from the tank to the transfer pump? The fact that you have smoke is an indication you are getting fuel to the cylinders. There is a reason for two 6 volt batteries instead of the single 12 volt battery you have chosen to use. While the voltage will be the same,the two batteries connected in series will provide a greater reserve amperage capacity, in other words you may have been able to continue cranking and get your enine started with the original set up as opposed to what you now have. If everything thing else checks out to be in good shape to fire, give it a quick whiff of starting fluid WHILE you are cranking the engine!!!! Do not flood it and lock it up. I will also assume you have changed the fuel filters and checked the sedimnt bowl if it has one. Is the air filter clean and capable of drawing enough air? Good luck!!!!!!!!!

The tractor came already converted to one 12 volt battery, so in the interest of trying to get it going, I left it as it was. Once I have it running and begin work on restoring it, I will rewire the cables and convert it back to original.

I have pulled the rubber hose from the intake manifold and checked it for obstructions, and it appears clear. (There was a large, abandoned wasp nest in the exhaust pipe!).

I appreciate the thought on the fuel filters. It could be that the flow is restricted and I am not getting enough fuel to fire it up. I will replace those and see if it helps.
