I have a D14 that had not been started for about a year. Last night, I put a new battery on it and tried to start it. When hit the start button, you hear that starter "pop" but the motor won"t turn. Any suggestions?

Was it out side with out the exhaust covered?? If you answer yes your in trouble because the cylinders will be rusted up badly. Now if it wasn't you can pull the plugs and fill the cylinders with ATF and let it sit a week or so. Be sure to put the plugs back in to keep dirt etc out. Also pull the starter just to make sure it didn't lock up in the flywheel. After a week pull the plugs and give the starter a try and you stand a good chance it will pop free. Use short fast taps on the starter and stand clear of the plug side of the engine because if it does pop free ATF will shower any thing on that side of the engine

The tractor was outside but the exhaust was covered. I'll give the ATF a try. What do I need to look for on the starter to make sure it is not locked up?

Thanks

Just pull the starter out and give it a bench test with a battery. If it spins up good on the bench then put it back in and try it. Some times the gears on the starter will jam on the ring gear and cause a lock up. I buy most of my tractors with locked up engines and so for out of 20 plus only 2 didn't free up and I have to soaking right now but I'm in no hurry to free them up I have to many irons on the place and not enough fire to keep them all hot LOL. But I do have 30 plus tractors. Check out my web page to see a few of them

Today's Featured Article - The Fordson F Ignition System - by Anthony West. A fellow restorer contacted me earlier this year asking for some help and advice on a model F that he was restoring. He had over a period of months spent a fair amount of his hard earned cash on replacement parts for the old "trembler" ignition. Sadly though all his efforts seemed to be a waste of time and money as he still couldn''t get the temperamental old thing to run correctly!! If i said that this was a little frustrating for him that would be "conservative" in fact the problem had reduce ... [Read Article]
