My boy and I were working on his 49 WD getting it piped for 2 way hydrols. When he was done with that, he tried to start it with the starter. No go. Tried different batts, no go. Hoked the cables up to the pk batt. No go. Tok the starter out and laid it on the fot board. Hooked the vables up again and it turned over.
Today, I tried it al again. No go. Sprayed the starter after taking it out and the surrounding ring in the tractor with carb cleaner, then wiped both off. Sprayed locking bo0lt. Put it together and tried to start it. No go. Noticed the batt cables were bad, especially the neg cable. Hooked the pk jumper cables to it, the neg on the frame, the pos onto the brass bolt on the starter. No go. Hooked the neg to the molding on the back of the starter. No go,.
