MF 135 (PERKINS 3 CYC. GAS) WILL NOT FIRE.

JACKIE HAVE CHANGED BATTERY, POINTS,CONDENSER, ROTOR BUTTON, SPARK PLUGS, AND HAVE NEW DIST. CAP ON ORDER. IT WAS STARTING AFTER A FEW TRIES THEN ONE DAY IT WON'T HIT A LICK, SO I CHANGED ALL OF THE ABOVE WITH NO LUCK. THE TRACTOR SPINS OVER FINE ,BUT THAT'S ALL IT DOES.I DON'T BELIVE IT'S A FUEL PROBLEM UNLESS IT'S GETTING FLOODED. I NEED SOME HELP.
Rick The quickest and surest way of verifying ignition is to hold on to a plug wire and jog the motor.If there is juice suspect a fuel problem.Check this by removing the hose attaching the carb to the air cleaner and injecting 20-40 cc's of gas directly into the carb using an old hypodermic syringe.If engine fires check fuel delivery lines,sediment bowl(if equipped)and lastly the carb float bowl for dirt and water.Make sure the fuel tank does not have water in it.If flooding is suspected shut off fuel,remove plugs (check for wet plugs and dry) spin engine over with plugs out.Reassemble,and try to start with gas still off.If no firing occurs try injecting gas into crb with a syringe.
If no spark is the problem check your ignition switch for continuity.Your coil and coil wire should also be checked.If your plugs are gapped correctly you should be able to locate and fix the problem following the steps above.
Rick.
