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?

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 - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
