Not being much of a mechanic, I need help. WHen the starter button is pushed, the starter just clicks. The batteries are fully charged. The click doesn"t really sound like a bad solenoid on a pickup does but sounds like it is the starter itelf. It has done this sporadically but the motor always eventually started... .until now. Any suggestions to diagnose the problem or start the tractor? Thanks.

Hey Doc You can have the same symtoms with worn out brushes, if this is the probem just jar the starter (whack it with a wrench)while you are just getting a click from the solinoid and the brushes will usually contact enough for one more start. Good luck, Harry

The problem you describe is virtually always either a bad cable or poor connections of the battery cables. The reason it worked like it did in the past is that when you tried to start, some current would flow. Since the poor connection had the highest resistance to flow, the poor connection would heat up and expand due to heating. When it expanded, it would tighten up and the resistance would drop. After a few tries, the resistance of the bad connection drops enough that the tractor cranks. Could be a battery post or could be the ground connection to the frame or block. Usually you can see it or feel it (warmth).

Check all the electrical connections and clean the battery terminals. Thats the problem 90% of the time.

Make sure there is 12volts going to the solenoid. I had the same problem on a IH. Replaced solenoid and rebuilt the starter. Had the same problem. Turned out it was a faulty starter button. It had become rusty inside and not letting voltage go through. Hope this helps.
