Hec.......Hobo's right, amp-meter don't tell you 'nuttin' about magic solid state electronic ignition. (its the way xstr ign is wired) Unfortunately, xstr ign either works or it don't and when it don't, its time to replace the $150 magic points. You doubt? Call Pertronix and complain. 4-nipple dizzy's don't like Pertronix modules. The module wiring don't like the cork water proofing gaskets. And sparkies don't like moisture inside the 4-nipple cap.

As fer using yer starter motor to move yer tractor outta the driveway, good thinking. Now yer starter drive is stuck in yer flywheel ring. Just loosen yer 2-LONG screws a little bitt and wobble yer starter motor and that should release the binding pressure. (remember to re-tighten) Using yer starter motor to move yer tractor should NOT burn yer starter motor up. (unless you ran it for 5-minutes) ........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister

Thanks for the input. I haven't worked on it today. Too Darn cold outside. Its 5 degrees adn windy! I will work on it this weekend. Should be in the 30's to 40's. I am thinking I may have smoked the solenoid. I only cranked it for about 30 seconds at a time then waited a couple of mins and cranked her again. I was heading down a gentle slope so I would get the tractor rolling with the starter, then hold the clutch in till she stopped. I'll keep everyone posted. As for the ignition issues I am betting its my ignition switch. I will jump the switch and see what happens after I get the tractor cranking.
