One guy at work said that his A JD wouldn't start. Drug the tractor 1/2 mile down the road and back home trying to start it. Took a coffee break. Went out and turned on the fuel petcock.

He did a great job of troubleshooting. Once I mentioned a few things to check in an earlier PM this week, and got his answer, he was able to find some more electrical problems and correct them.
As far as the clutch goes, I'm hoping that it is just seized up to to it been sitting for a long period of time, or needs some adjustments?
Got to tell you BD, the engine itself runs great now. Compression seems to be fine, no apparent leaks (other than the sediment bowl which Joe is going to fix by just replacing the entire assembly as it is in really bad shape) and I couldn't really see anything else wrong with the exception of the clutch not wanting to release.

I spend several winter afternoons rewiring my neighbors 154 in a nice heated garage with a well stocked refrigerator.
Suggest getting the wiring diagram for your Cub. Then studying the diagram for several hours - until you understand it thourghly.
I would rewire as necessary - required - if in doubt replace. The 154 is a pain to rewire. I had to remove the dash to get to the wiring. The major expense was time to replace, repair and straignten out the wiring. The actual wiring supplies cost less than $20.
3 way spade connector. Auto parts store or Radio Shack should have them. I'n not sure you are going to need one.
