Allis G Bad ground?

I"m having trouble starting my G. Tractor had a ford type solenoid on it with starter button when I got it. Did not change that (but will go back to original soon). Put all new cables on it and rebuilt starter two years ago. Solenoid is new. Charging system registers as charging, cut out relay not stuck. I get a hot positive ground cable when I"m trying to crank her over. Tried two different grounds, one to battery box, now I"m back to main bolt on tractor frame near shifter. I"m thinking maybe that a bad starter button might be the cause. Sometimes it will stick when depressed. Any thoughts?

Thats a problem I have met on some of the Gs I have worked on. You need to trace your connections. Skip using the batter box as a ground. The Starter button is known to be inconsistant. Sometimes you have to jerk the button on to get it to go instead of pulling up. Don't know why but that is how my G seems to function better.

If the solenoid gets repeated doses of low voltage, it could tend to stick, due to the roughening of the edges that occurs, due to bad internal connections. I'd first check that all the wires are the right size, and have no corrosion anywhere, then check the solenoid.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
