I have a 835m john deere, its cranking but not starting, exhaust coming out of the air filter, do i have a clogged exhaust or do i have to do the timing? Its getting plenty of spark and fuel, cranking around 230-260 rpm and not starting. Any ideas?

Do you have compression? Stuck, bent or burnt valve?

Highly unlikely the exhaust is that clogged unless a rodent climbed in and got stuck. Usually exhaust restrictions will limit power or rpm climb but seldom prevent starting.
