Remove a couple of spark plugs, and spritz 3-4 drops of gas into the cylinder, replace plug, try to start. If it fires up, and dies out, fuel is not getting to the intake manifold. If it will not fire with fuel and spark IN the cylinder, you have other problems.

Is it possible the timing chain was worn and may have jumped a few teeth when it stalled?

9N Ford engine does not have a timing chain or belt, it is geared, you need to check the compression & that is with all 4 spark plugs out...............

the carbs on the 9n and 8n tractors are notorious for causing fuel problems. as suggested, just because there's fuel getting to the carb, doesn't mean it's making into he intake. also the carb on those tractors is a downdraft style. take the carb off and check the float valve. with the crappy gas quality these days, it's probably gunked up. if the float is gunked up, it will never get to the intake.

Choke it and crank it for a few seconds then see if the plugs are wet. Is magneto snapping when you are trying to start it. Check the air cleaner to make sure it is getting enough air.

The magneto not snapping would not cause to stall. Also the coil in the magneto may be bad, the spark might not be strong enough.

As others have said though, I would bet on the carb needing a rebuild and a good cleaning.

Spray starting fluid into the air intake when you hit the starter. If it fires - it is not getting fuel.
