Ok, I got the tractor cranking. I was able to get 0 gauge cables with eyelet crimped on the end at NAPA. I sanded battery posts, sanded the area around where the ground is bolted to tractor, and the tractor fired right up. So it was one of the cables that was bad, or perhaps ground was losing contact. The funny thing is, the old cables look fine! I am not able to see any corrosion around any of the contacts. Maybe the wire was corroding on the inside. Thanks for all the comments and good advice from you guys! I really appreciate it!

I pretty much was going to guarantee you need cables. take those old ones and cut the ends off near the battery cables ends, pretty sure you will see green corrosion. I have found this many times.

Battery cable go bad just from being old and used a lot. One or both ends could be corroded inside where you cannot see. Or the cable it self could have gone bad which does happen. The common man does not have a VOM that will test for resistance which can build up over the years and that is why they go bad
