I took the starter in a month ago. Me and my boy put it in on his tractor. Wouldn't work. Besides the batt cable he only had one wire to hook to it. Im just ch3ecking here, as I took it back to the rebuilder, who is usually good at his work. is there one or more wires that hook to the starter?

The other side of the battery is connected via the tractor frame into the bell housing and throught the lock screw that holds the starter in place. There is a flat bare woven wire strap from the positive terminal to the top of the transmission; it runs through the switch/ammeter box on the back of the battery box.

Battery cable and one wire. Those mechanical switches on starters can be, well let's just say, temperamental. You might try operating the switch with your hand rather than pulling on the starter rod. Do be certain the tractor is out of gear before you do that.

Yeah, the side piece on the starter was froze up, and it was new 2 yrs ago, and never used. I took the pin out and it and the ring the starter fits in was clean with no rust. A bit on the oily side, but no rust. got the side piece worked free easy enough, but it still wouldn't start. I had it to a shop 3 weeks ago.

There is a "Wire" you would not think about. Sometimes the hole the starter slips in and the pointed set screw are dirty and rusty and do not make a good electrical connection. That locking set screw has to be clean and make a good connection for the circuit to be complete.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
