The small post shouldn't turn. It should be locked with a nut, then your terminal goes on, then another nut.

Thanks. I didn't think it was supposed to turn, but it does have a knurled knob so I wasn't sure.

You've just about got her. Sounds like a new solenoid (or repair the old if possible) and you'll be up and running.

As stated the small stud should have 2 nuts, one "jam" nut for the stud and one "lock" nut for the terminal. Try finding a matching nut to tighten up the terminal and another for the wire. It might just be too loose to make the needed connection.

If you do get a new solenoid make sure it is for a tractor. And one that is GROUND activated. A car solenoid usually has 4 posts instead of three. Some will work, some won't. Heck, get one here and support YT.

Thanks again, I had to go back to work....I work in the oil & gas business out in West Texas. Won't get to work on the tractor again until the end of the month when I go back home. I ordered a tractor solenoid so hopefully at the end of the month I'll have this thing fixed.
