Re: Wheel Horse 244-5 won't crank

Ok, cleaned all the terminals and put in a new battery. Have ground, it sparks when touched pos. to frame. Nothing when I turn the key. Can't find an inline fuse, on either the red or blue wire. Have a junction block with 3--40 amp spade fuses, just below the gas tank on the right side under the hood beside the battery. What do they fuse?

I'd like to try jumping it with the new battery now that I am sure we have a good ground. Which terminal on the starter or solenoid should I jump to?

Could the starter switch be bad? What are the safety lockouts?

Many thanks for your help.

The 3 fuses are for alt output to battery,feed to ign sw/tractor wiring & pto,pull fuses & check with an ohmmeter/battery powered test light,fuse may be blown inside body & not be visable in window on same,also check rateings on fuses carefully,same may be 4.0A not 40A,if they are someone in the past has installed oversize fuses,according to wiring diag at partstree alt output should be 30A,fuse for ign sw/tractor wiring 25A & fuse for pto 15A.

Goto link below with mod#/sn of tractor off id tag,operators manual & service manual for eng avail as a free download,download both & save same to disk & print offline,if no wiring diagram in operators manual goto link below & look in toro lawn/garden tractors,find your tractor mod#,wiring diag posted there.

If sol on starter has 2 large connections on same,put jumper on large connection with tab going into starter motor,this should spin starter motor if starter motor good,take a jumper from battery terminal & momentarly touch small terminal on sol for coil,starter drive should engage & starter should crank eng if sol/starter motor in operating condition.
