Sounds good to me. Did you just try to start it. Pity your fuel system is off the tractor. My last one had been standing in the corner of a field for many years but just for luck I put a battery on and it fired straight up. The cold start jammed on and it revved madly 'blew what was left of the exhauast all over the field. MTF

hi mike, thanks for the response, probably have to pick your brains over the next months! i trailered her back to my workshop and pushed her in, put a battery on her just to try, got a load of clicking from the solonoid and not much else! fuel tank is dry,the glass top to the lift pump has gone and the filter was full of crap. however, after the filter there was diesel in the system so just a good clean out should do it. got the replacement bits so i'll be sorting the fuel side tomorrow.

Guess it probably wasn't going to start then. Pick my brain any time although its getting a bit 'slack'an rusty and often I fully remember totally the wrong thing. BUT I do have a couple of good manuals and there are countless helpful gentlemen on this site. Just ask and I'll almost bet that the answer will somewhere in your replies. How about posting a pic?
Very best of luck
MTF
