Let's not forget either that there may be people that recently acquired their first tractor that may not even know that it will only start normally when in neutral.

I don't remember if I was actually told of this when I purchased my 8n or not. I may have read about it when I purchased all the manuals that people here recommend.

I do remember one time while working on my dirt road that I tried to restart it and it would not start. It quickly came to mind that I had it in gear. At least I was in the drivers seat so even if it did start in gear I just would have been a little surprised.

What I'm saying is that the neutral safety switch is there for a reason and it worked like it should have in that instance for me. I'm willing to bet that there are other members here that got reminded of how that safety switch works, hopefully with no bad results as in my case. :wink:

Luckily the way it works is that the switch will not push down if you have it in gear. That way you know instantly what is wrong and don't start looking for electrical problems all over the place.
