Jared, First, charge the battery. It was in need of a good charge. Then clean both battery terminals and clamps with some fine sandpaper. Then put it all back together and tighten up the clamps to the terminals. You also might have to monkey around with the starter rod, as you are pushing it in. Sometimes they get a little bent. That starter is fine, don't worry about it. Worry about that battery!! Steve

Make sure your B model has the correct size cables on it for 6V (1 gauge) and they are nice and clean at both ends. One bad cable out of the two is enough to give you starter troubles. If you find you need to replace the cables, we make them specifically for the B model. Both the Positive grd or starter motor... Good Luck!

you have to take the switch off the starter and check the contacts on it. then decide which is bad. guess you have a good battery and good ground to clean bolt with no paint? sometimes i set a jumper battery next to tractor. run a cable to the starter bolt, and run another cable to the ground bolt on the starter. you can use a 12 volt battery if you want to test. after connecting, with tractor in neutral, push the switch in.
