I tried two turns out this morning and it would kick. I'm going back a little later this morning and will try another half turn out. I suspect I've been over choking it because the mixture wasn't rich enough and I'm wetting out the plugs.
To answer some of the other questions the 12 v conversion was something I did this fall and the battery is virtually brand new. And I could choke it to life when it was warmer. Runs well once started. Although I didn't do the 1/4" gap test I pulled each plug and checked spark (and they were wet), nice bright blue/white sparks.
Regarding the starter not staying engaged if it's not the ring gear then maybe it's the gear on the starter it's self. Or the gizmo the shoots the starter gear out is weak. The starter is the only bolt on part that I haven't replaced on this tractor.
