      Donna don't give up if the tractor won't start it is either out of gas or you have no spark. Make sure that the gas valve is turned on it is located under the gas tank,if it is on and you are getting gas check the spark. there are different ways to do this one is to remove a plug then ground it (hold it against the engine with the plug wire attached ) have some one try to start it and watch the plug to see if it fires, if it fires you are ok if it dosen't then more then likely you need new points. Also make sure that the pulley on the front bottom  of the motor is turning when you roll it over ,belt may be slipping and not turning the crank.I will try to help you all I can but without being there it is hard to tell what the problem might be.

      I am in Madison Indiana. South Eastern Indiana to give you a general
      I would do what Larry said but I can't get past the first step because
      the poor thing won't even fire. When I say won't fire there is no
      sound of it even trying to fire up. Like the plugs aren't even being
      hit or something. The fan turns but that's it.
      The drive shaft will not turn freely at all. Even with a wrench it is
      very hard to move. When we did turn it and try to start it the sound
      of it trying to start was different every time we turned the shaft. I
      don't know if that tells you anything but maybe a clue to what is
      really wrong. The shaft has been welded multiple times too ;o(

      Any body needing some parts from this thing. I think it is done for
      sadly :o(

      Thanks for any help you can give.
