Back during the summer I had my 57 to 35 out at the rental to mow the grass and had a hard time with the tall grass, the tractor would hardly cut in first gear so the other day I brought it home and found the bolt on the dist. that I had cut off for easy starter removal had slipped allowing the timing to retard. It was so bad I had to put it in granny gear to get it up the ramp! Advanced it and tried the ramp again with no problem.Plan to put the timing light on it today.7 degrees before, right?

I have the same tractor,
the distributor shaft top bearing could be worn. This loose play will make it very difficult to adjust your points and keep them set.
Take the rotor button off and move the distributor shaft back and forth. The back and forth movement will determine the level of wear in the top bearing.

As for as getting out of time, you may not have tighten the distributor holding bolt properly.

Let us know what you find wrong.

The timing has been seen as both 6 and 7 deg BTDC....if you set it to 6 deg, this will be OK....John(UK)
