Can anyone please tell me of an easy way to test
the starter switch on my 8N ? The tractor starts
right up when I short the solenoid with a wire!
Thanks!

easy test?

got an ohm meter or test lamp?

#1pull wire off thumb switch and insulate the end.. do not let it touch ground.

be in neutral to test this just in case you mess up on #1.

#2, get ohm meter.. one lead to chassis one leat to tab on switch.. press switch.. should go to 0ish ohms.

or #3, test lamp from bat hot to tab on switch.. pressing it makes the lamp glow.

I endorse Soundguy's process as better than mine. Go with his suggestions.

The wire from the switch should have continuity to ground with the button pushed. Solenoids go bad more often than the switch. You could ground a wire and touch it to the pin that the wire from the button connects to. That would tell if it's the switch or solenoid.
