Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, the crank wire from the starter switch goes thru a very complex junction box with fuses and (and relays?) and changes color so I am unable to trace the wire inside the junction box.
Can I run a wire directly from the crank terminal of the starter switch to the tab of the solenoid to energize the starter? I realize that that would override the safety mechanizims, But I have few safety switches on my MF50 and 65, and get along ok.
Also, any idea where I can get a carburetor bowl for this tractor, parts tree does not have any?
