The hole in the tank is slightly smaller than the fuel line, else it would leak. So.. you can't push it in, you have to pull it in. I use a label tag wire (about 10" long), stick it through the hole and out the fuel cap hole. Snip the fuel line at an angle on the end, punch a hole in it then stick the wire through the line and twist it. Now you can pull the line through the hole.

It might be easier to simply siphon it out with some tubing. Get 7 feet of 1/4 or 5/16 tubing and stick 3 or 4 feet into your gas tank. Have a gas can under the gas door ready to catch the fuel. **** on the end of the hose until fuel is almost at your mouth and then stick the end in the can. It will pull most of the fuel out of your tank. You can also buy a siphon kit so you don't have to **** on the hose. Get as much out as you can, then top it off with gas to dilute the rest.

You have a clogged fuel manifold in the carb. This is usually caused by something in the float needle seating area. Remove the float bowl, remove the float and pull out the float needle. Then use carb cleaner in the float needle area to blow out the debris or dried / varish in the float needle seat and the fuel maifold. Spray carb cleaner from the manifold / hose fuel connection and make sure that you get it clean. Then with the float and float needle still removed turn on the gas and make sure you have fuel flow.
Here is a carb kit if you need parts:

I get the feeling that this tractor sat ilde for sometime and your now trying to get it going again. When a fuel system sits for a very long time with fuel the fuel in the float bowl and carb will turn into a shellac and really gum things up. Worst case you remove the carb and soak it in Chemtool B-12 overnight / couple of days then rebuild it using the kit above. (You will be glad that you did!)
You can get a new fuel cap here:
Also there is a SCREEN in the top of the fuel sediment bowl that can be caked with gunk. This will stop all fuel flow if it is blocked.
I have spent hundreds of hours on one of these... doing large garden work back in the day and moving hay in several different ways. (Brings back some good memories and makes me ponder where that tractor is today...hmmm..)
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
