Trying to reconstruct what happened. One of the end prongs was touching the breaker point bottom plate. I thought it was in the groove. When I mounted the distributor back on the tractor the plate moved up and froze and the rotor et al wouldn't turn. When I took it out it was solid. I wouldn't have believed it would make that much difference. Not sure how much damage if any when I was trying to restart the tractor. Removed the snap ring and it freed up.
Also, not sure if it was totally related but I have no spark at the plugs (obviously) but my ammeter usually moves when starting but isn't now. I took the coil wire off and get a spark when I ground it. Will get back on it this week. Thank you for the response Jim and Bob..
