John deere riding mower starting problem.

I bought a john deere riding mower really cheap. He said it just wouldn't start but had good fire. Got it home, went all threw it. Cleaned carburate, took of flywheel checked key, cleaned spark plug and gapped it. Cleaned air filter, set valve gaps. All day I worked on this mower, could not get it to fire up. Took the brand new spark plug out and put in an old one I had on the shelf. Now it runs like a brand new mower. Sometimes problems are simple. I've never had a bad spark plug out of the box before.
