Welcome to the Forum! You came to the right place for Bolens information :)

I need to know a little more what exactly is going on with the engine....

Does it turn over?
Are you getting Spark?

yes it turns over and has good spark i think there might be something wrong with the carburetor the gas tank shut of valve broke so I put a pipe on it and ran it completely out of gas and it didnt have a filter because there was a filter on the old shut off valve and it never ran good after that like it sucked in some stuff of the bottem of the tank

sounds like that may be your problem. If your getting a full stream of fuel running out of the tank then most likely the carb is gunked up and will need to be cleaned.

Yeah I rebuilt the starter generator and it turned over faster and it started right up turns out every time the engine started firing the barings in the generator would lock up and stall the engine resulting in an engine that didnt start but thanks for all the sugestions now i can think about other things for my tractor instead of the engine
