Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. has the tractor ran this year at all , also of not did it have gas in it from last year ? It sounds like a carburetor issue . The thing on the bottom of the bowl is a anti backfire solenoid . That wouldn't stop gas getting to the carburetor. My concern is it could be bad gas in the carburetor

but I put new gas in it today too it fired if I dump in carb

Yeah it definitely sounds like it either isn't getting gas or the carburetor is blocked . Or the gas in the bowl is bad and won't burn

Have you tried draining the carburetor bowl
