So the previous owners left behind what appears to be a 69-70 ford 120 the couple questions I have is. The red wire coming off the ignition they have going to the pto switch on the dash then going to the coil is that correct. Second the pto is disconnected so where do those wires go and third I put fuel in it yesterday and tryed to start it but the fuel dissapears and I have no clue where it is going?

I am not familiar with that make but if the fuel is disappearing it may be leaking into the engine oil --carb acting up or if it has a fuel pump in could be leaking into engine if pump is bad----drain oil out and see if it smells like gas---you should change the oil anyway if you not sure when it was done last.

Alright I finally got the spark plug to spark by cleaning up the points. Had to replace the solinoid quit getting power to the starter. I figured out where the fuel is going but this thing still won't start

Check for spark. If you have spark, pull the carb and rebuild it.

The front tires are 5.50 they are dry rotted beyond belief and won't hold air. What size tires will fit. And she will be painted. Once I know she will run

When I rebuild my carbs it takes some cranking to pick up gas. Have you checked your pump. Front tires are 16x6.5-8. I like these jake built tractors. Easy to work on
