Gonefishn said: (quoted from post at 23:33:46 02/19/13) Tested the 311006. I removed the harness wires from the solenoid and the placed the ground under the mounting bolt of the solenoid. Fixed a jumper to run from the positive battery post and placed it on the I (small terminal first). Nothing happened. I then placed the jumper on the S terminal and the solenoid closed and the starter engaged. Just for understanding I then grounded the I terminal and placed the jumper on the S terminal. The solenoid chattered. I received this solenoid from a tractor parts supplier. All the numbers indicated that this was the correct part for my tractor, my luck also.
" Just for understanding I then grounded the I terminal and placed the jumper on the S terminal. The solenoid chattered. ",,,,,,,,that does not make sense for any solenoid...right or wrong type. "I" is an open ended circuit until the solenoid is pulled in. You don't have the wrong type, it is a defective part & further, even if the wrong part, to function like your description, it would still need to be a defective part.

and wrong part IMHO.. but not defective..

he grounded the base of the solenoid then hit S with power.. solenoid engaged. that's wrong part.. not an iso base. my guess is it's a bypass solenoid

he then added a ground to I and hit S with power and solenoid chattered.


when solenoid pulled in with S being powered.. then there was a ground present common to battery, menaing ground present common to that jumper to S.. and that probably kicked her out.. which broke ground path and let her pull back in.

sounds like a ignition bypass solenoid to me..

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeMay be.....but I'm not there to see his lash up. He did say it "pulled in & ran starter", so sounds like big honkin battery cable connected & I can not imagine that little finger inside that picks up power for the "I" terminal, not being instantly vaporized when he engaged with "I" grounded. Just can't see it pulling down battery enough to release solenoid....something somewhere should have produced smoke. In less than a minute in either of our hands, we would know what solenoid he has...or had...but he may never know. Especially now! I just stepped into this affair to prevent archives from recording that 311006 was not same as ST-542. :roll:

I too think the lil contact should have burned or welded.. like you say. not being there and seeing what he is using as jump cables and or meter readings. I agree hard to say, other than it's not behaving right.

To me the solenoid sounded as though it chattered. The starter did not engage, the solenoid was not continuously closed. I am planning on trying the NAPA ST 542. I will let you know what happens. I know that the part could be bad out of the box and anything is possible. But I received this part from a supposedly quality tractor parts dealer. This issue makes me even more timid about dealing with suppliers.
