Hey Doug, just because the battery is new doesn't mean it is good. You need to verify the specific gravity with a hydrometer or have your local starter shop check it out. They can test the battery at the same time. I worked on a Massey tractor this past summer for a friend, and he just bought a new battery lass than a year ago. Well, guess what? It was junk. You can also take your starter to him as well and he will test that too -all usually for free. If battery is weak, starter won't engage or stay engaged. Don't guess as to what the problem is, a systematic, root cause problem solving method is essential. Put carb back to original settings and dry off plugs or install ne w dry ones. Test for spark. You say you did the 12-volt conversion -what all did you do? Consult Wiring Pictograms by JMOR.
