    This is a 2010 gasoline farm tractor - I was talking to some guys at work and they think it could be that the timming gear may be shot - you supose that would be a place to start?

The timing gear is made from material which will break if the gears are not meshed correctly, if the distrubiter has come loose at some time, this can chew out the timing gear and leads to all sorts of problems (ie correct timing)

Where can I get a new carb four 2010 john deere not rebuild .will not start when worm.

You should be able to get a new carb from any john Deere dealer.You may want to check the tractor for fire when it's warm,you may have a coil breaking down when warm due to the oil has leaked out over the years.I would check to see if you have spark or not before buying a new carb.

Possible starter problem?

Check the ring gear that it meshes with as it may have damaged teeth!
Turn it a full 360 degrees & check all the teeth!as when they are turned off they often stop in the same area due to motor ballance thus wearing out teeth in one area!
