I would do everything Tom has already mentioned plus I would check the Manual PTO safety switch (If so equipped)and seat safety switch. Either one not closing will not allow the engine to start. It will crank but not allow the ignition to function. Take a multimeter and set it to continuity. Place one test lead on each terminal of the safety switch. You should have continuity when the PTO is Off and when you have pressure on the seat. If no continuity, you will either need to adjust the switch until you have continuity or replace. I guess you could bypass the switches too, but its not advisable.

Hec, I am not a Deere guy so I do not know how their safety switches are wired.

Are you telling us that the power going from the key switch to the coil is interrupted by the safety switches?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Tom,

Yes they do. I just went through this exercise on my 1978 JD 210. The seat switch and PTO Switch are wired in Parallel between the key switch and coil.

This is from the manual.

All 200 Series Tractors have a battery coil ignition system. When the points are opened, the primary circuit is broken and the magnetic field within the coil collapses.

When the ignition switch is closed, current will flow

from the battery (E) to the coil (F)only if (either or both)

the PTO safety switch (B) is closed (closed with PTO

disengaged) or the seat switch (C) (70,001- ) is

closed (closed when seated on tractor). Current flows

through the primary windings of the coil (F) through the

breaker points (H) when closed, then to ground.

I hope this helps

Hec
