To facilitate the construction of weyl invariant theories, a "tractor connection" as well as "tractor operators" on a conformal manifold will be introduced . Using these newly introduced "tractor operators", we build a scalar field theory in curved backgrounds which exhibits the relation between Weyl weight and mass. In addition, it will be shown that the Maxwell and Proca systems are manifestations of a deeper, underlying weyl invariant theory with mass-Weyl weight relationship explicitly given.
