Question about Ariens Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
If plug is dry than you are not getting fuel to the plug something is plugged up in the carb clean it thoroughly and make your coil gap is correct. But I would lean more towards the fuel not reaching the plug.

You are probably correct by saying the engine is half siezed. Rust will get inside the cylinder if it is not used very often. This is a common problem. You are doing the correct thing by turning the engine over with a wrench while putting oil or penetrating oil down the cylinder. The cylinder usually cleans up after a while of turning the engine. But please note that if this is the case then rust has gotten into the cylinder and it may have caused some damage. I have "broke loose" many engines by using the penetrating oil and turning them over by hand with good success. But this may cause it to use some oil, break a ring, or cause more engine damage. Be careful and good luck. Hope this helps.
