Have you tried using the choke?
Gasoline engines, especially 1960's and 1970's era gasoline engines, are "cold blooded." Until they're warmed up they often need to be choked to varying degrees to keep them running when it's very cold out.
You often need to "blip" or "feather" the choke in response to what the engine needs to stay running. If you don't choke, the engine stalls. If you set the choke and leave it, the engine will flood.
Every tractor's a little different, though. Sometimes you can "set it and forget it" until the engine warms up. Sometimes all it needs is a quick shot. Sometimes you need to put it somewhere 1/2 way and leave it. You have to feel it out.
