Jumped the battery to the starter and it will engage the solenoid, and crank the engine. I did not try to fire it up. But I now know the starter is Ok and the battery and grounds are OK.

The problem has to be in the starter switch circuit somewhere.

I know the fuses are shot so i will replace them today.

Boy, what a complex wiring setup for a little tractor used only to tow stuff around the property , no PTO, No mower.

Is there any easy way to simplify the electrical wiring to just a start/ kill switch?

I have 2 full size tractors (50 & 65 HP) here on the farm that are far less complicated to operate.

You need to use a volt meter or test lite to see if there's battery voltage to your solenoid when you twist the key to start or press a starter button. There should be voltage being fed to to your switch you can check that with your volt meter or lite. Check that first, if there's no voltage being fed to your switch you won't have any for starting your engine. Could be a broken or loose wire if there's no voltage. Hal
