We need a bit more info to better serve you. Is it 6V or 12V? Did you have the battery tested or just assuming if you put it on charge it will be good? Dead battery is the first thing to go when tractor sets idle for weeks. Expect that unless you use a float charger like the Battery Tender. There's nothing wrong with a Zenith carb - if it is a true Zenith -many aftermarket clones are out there and are junk. Parts are basically the same - carb kits supply M/S as well. Got your Essential Manuals? "...I also noticed I will probably have to work on the starter as well..." What did you 'notice'? How did you determine the starter was bad or going bad? Is it the OEM 1-Wire starter motor? Have the battery tested at a shop. Perform the fuel flow test. Don't muck with any carb settings. Go thru entire wiring with the battery off or disconece5td. Use your VOM set to continuity and VOM and NOT a test light. Manuals have wiring diagrams.
