I have a allis-chalmers d-14 (early model). I had to remove the starter, when i replaced the solenoid on the starter I thought Ihad the wiring corrrect on it but when I tried to start it, the solenoid sparked. Can someone give me in detail the correct wiring on the solenoid or maybe a diagram? Thisis a second posting, first must not have gone through. Thank you in advance

Sounds like a bad ground or the starter is shorted bench check the starter then make sure that the start. and the sol. are grounded well
also where did the sol. spark at? you can also use jumper cables to crank moter call if u like

I have an old Allis Chamlers "B" with a similar problem and could use the same diagram. I am installing a marine ignition switch so that I can start, run and stop the tractor with one switch. I'm quite sure how it all wires together but I would like to have an amp meter, lights, starter, and kill swtich on one ignition switch. I've been told to use a marine switch. Any help would be appreciated.

i'll guess and say a white wire goes from the button switch to the center(small) terminal on the solenoid.

a blue wire goes from the large battery cable terminal side of the solenoid (always hot) to the amp gauge ( to the key switch if no guage).

opposite solenoid side terminal (large) goes to the starter motor

the wire colors may have changed as often as did the previous owners.

I'll give it a shot. If it is sparking, the most likely problem is that the solenoid is not properly grounded. Current comes from the starter switch to the solenoid, goes through the solenoid coil and then through the solenoid case through bolts to ground. If there is paint or dirt in the mounting, you may get sparks. One side of the power terminals goes to the negative terminal of the battery (assuming positive ground). The other side goes to the starter. Be sure all of the conections are clean. If they are, it should work.

You could do it likewe do on race cars. We use a short piece of copper tubing. Pound it REAL flat atone end so that it's wide, small on the other end. Drill a 3/8hole on one, 1/8 on the other end to jump your solenoid. Attch a Ford car solenoid a short distance away. Run a GOOD cable between the two. Move your original starter wire over to your Ford solenoid to energize it. It takes about 30 amps to energize tose big solenoids on the starter, so, it takes a big wire to run all of the way to the starter button nd back to the original solenoid. The Ford solenoid only takes a small amount of juice.Move your main power feed wire over to the Ford solenoid, too, because the original solenoid won't have any juice EXCEPT starter button is engaged.
