When you remove the distributor, the thing you see behind it is actually the end of the camshaft, not the crankshaft. If the starter turns the engine over, but every time you remove the distributor the camshaft is in the same position, it is very unlikely that the engine stopped at exactly the same place every time. At that point, yank on the fan belt and see if the camshaft moves. If not, the camshaft is not being turned by the crankshaft. This could mean the timing gear has come loose from the camshaft, or the timing gear is missing some teeth (as had already been suggested). One of the more common causes of camshaft timing gear problems is someone removed the governor and put the long bolt in the hole the short bolt came out of. Camshaft not turning is not a problem that can be fixed from the outside. The engine has to be at least partially disassembled. Rather than tackle internal engine repairs, most people will be shopping for a good used engine, or start parting that tractor out to get money to buy a different tractor.
