OK, now I understand.
So the distributor passed the continuity check, correct?
It's unlikely that you have a defective coil. It's more likely that you didn't do the test correctly.
Assuming the distributor passed the continuity tests, that means your coil has continuity on the primary circuit through the distributor.
So put the distributor and coil back on the tractor.
Turn the key on.
Check for voltage at the top of the coil.
You should see either battery voltage or about half of battery voltage. Bump the starter and keep checking until you see battery voltage and then 1/2 that.
If you do, then the tractor should start. If it does not, check for spark at the plugs.
