Dit the initial assessment. A car battery hooked to the existing dead battery will not start the engine. Cranks too slow. But jumping directly to the starter will. Need to see if unhooking the dead battery will allow it to start with the jumper to the battery cables.
Engine starts and runs nicely on carb cleaner. The plugs look good. Compression seems good.
Split the carb and cleaned a bit of gunk out but did not go through it. Cleaned the gas tank and replaced the line and filter.
Found out the hood mounting brackets are missing. The muffler on the tractor does not exit where there is a cutout in the hood. Hmmm

The tractor originally came with a 12.5HP single cylinder. Made a trip to the roll off and one to the car wash today. The battery will start it sometimes and not others.

Flushed the engine with karosene twice and refilled with rotella t. But even though I was careful to drain the karosene the engine now rattles and I plan to change it again.
