Was #1 on the compression stroke when you lined up flywheel marks?

yes sir, rotated the engine by hand, used a vacuum gauge that shows pressure and vacuum. Rotated the engine until the pressure started to go down on the gauge, then show vacuum, the rotated it the other way back to zero.

This is basically the same thing I did. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aajWrKGFnDI

Got it going, runs really good now, just bump the key and it fires right up. It was timing, the manual I have showed what I was doing wrong. I was bringing it to TDC compression, but the points where closed, the manual says to advance the distributor until the points just start to open, did that and it fired right up.

I did notice that the tractor ran better a little better with NGK 3112 spark plugs than Autolite 437, same tune, same gap, roughly same amount of time doing the same job. Has anyone else seen this?
