Farmall Super A Tractor won't crank

wateri in carb. Drain sediment bowl if you have one, install a new gas filter , inline, and then open the drain on the end of carb, small plug, and let all water out. Install a shutoff on gas line and when your done with the maching shut it off and let the tractor run out of gas. That way you will never have a condensation problem. My super A starts 1st time every time due to this precaution.

I was given a Case tractor. It needed a fuel

Is your fuel pump working? are you getting fuel to the carb?

1. check for spark
2. check for compression in all cylinders
3. check carb (if it's been a long time since it was last started, you will need to just take the carb apart and clean it or get a carb rebuild kit. rebuild kit is easiest route and once you do that, you are done fussing with it.
4. Diagnose the problem.
a. try starting fluid directly into the carb. If it fires up then quits you have a fuel delivery problem. Once you figure out that, you can trace the problem back from the motor to the tank.
5. If you don't have any spark, try new plugs, then try new wires, then start going over your electrical system
