Check the neutral switch. Maybe out of adjustment or not working. I have to play with the high/low range stick to get the switch to work in neutral, before mine will start. I have to fix mine some day.

Tiller belt on mine is 28”. Did you get the tiller with it. Nice lookin tractor. Great paint on it.

Looking at the pictures again if the wire is going to the starter solenoid it could be the ground wire & if this is what it is it could be connected to the negative battery terminal. Many GT batteries use bolt instead of the clamp on posts.

Now that the soledoid wire that was loose is grounded the starter spins.  Making a buzzing sound and I can see it spinning.

Starter drive is stuck or starter not spinning fast enough.

No they didnt have the tiller unfortunately ! I will look for one later on after I am happy with how this runs .  It wont buzz at all if it drive but if i jiggle it to neutral that is when i get the starter trying

The wire that goes from the front to the electric pto clutch is in tact . its the one that goes to the points that is not connected. I do not know where it goes tho it starts that the cover in the red circle then is just about a foot and a half long to go to the points i guess .  But I do not seem to know where that is.  Also do you think this would be the reason for it not starting?

 

Is the points behind this coil?

The points are under that little cover in the pic...2 screws. Take that cover off to look at the points. Take the spark plug out and turn the engine by hand. You will see the points open and close. They should open .020 inch...thats 20 thou on a feeler gauge.....The other end of the wire goes to the small connection of the coil....same terminal as the condenser. Thats that other little cylinder thing in your coil pic

BTW...its a pain to get the points cover off due to the PTO shaft being in the way.......Dont know why they put it so close.

Still no luck getting it to turn over... Going to do some more adjustments and googling.  If you all have any other ideas I would love to hear em.  Still stuck to where  Ive got voltage at starter and there is gas in the carb.  The starter just buzzes and seems to spin pretty fast. but no crank over on the engine at all.  It does move freely though and I know for a fact cus I was there it was running about a month ago

i would take the starter off and check the drive.. See if its stuck. It should spin out to engage its teeth into the teeth of the flywheel to turn the motor. Only two bolts hold the starter on. 

Check the teeth on the drive and flywheel to see if they are damaged.

This is where the wire for the points goes. One end on the points, the other on the negative side of the coil. The condenser hooks to the negative side of the coil also.
