I would strongly suggest a systematic approach.
Don't get bogged down by looking at the entire project at the same time.
Start out first with a compression check.
Pull the plugs, open the throttle plate fully and conduct a compression check.
You very likely may have a sticky valve that will give a crazy reading on a cylinder or two.
No problem. If you receive a crazy low reading, pull the valve covers and look to see if the valves operate. You can free them up if they don't.
Then adjust the valves.
Next, pull off the distributor and do a COMPLETE tune up.
Rebuild the carburetor.
THIS IS NOT throwing parts at your tractor.
This is a systematic approach to static set-up for your soon to be a fine running machine.
You don't know and shouldn't care about the past.
Your focus is to systematically work through each mechanism, circuits, etc and know for certain that the work behind you is completed.
Your tractor was designed and engineered to run and work.
After you have carefully worked through each "system" on your tractor there can be only one outcome:
It will run as it was designed to run.
Don't get in a hurry!
