Could be a carboned up stuck open exhaust valve causing no compression.

   sweet find !!!  looks complete with both side covers and the headlight bracket.  I bet with soap and water that will clean up real nice and be a great worker.  keep us informed as to how you make out with it.

I have been looking at the pictures I took of it I noticed the lift lever was missing and I'm not sure the hydro lift on it is right because the cylinder should be under it if im right not on the right side of it as you can see in the first picture of it but if I'm wrong please someone correct me

Nice find! It should have a Briggs 23D engine in it.As others have said, a stuck valve is probably the reason for no compression. I would remove the engine and remove the engine covers to give it a good cleaning and inspection. Also remove the head and inspect the cylinder and check the valves. Clean and adjust the points and test for spark before putting the engine back in. Coils are available for your armature if your coil is bad. These Briggs engines are prone to having mouse nests in them when they sit and it can cause the engine to overheat. The mice have a taste for wire insulation, too. That tractor will look much better once you clean the grunge off of it. The '64 Landlord is one of my favorites.

Man, lots of little stuff laying all around in that barn. Might wanna look around and see if anything more should go with it? That rear mount looks similar to a plow frame, just missing back half??
