TO-30 Short leading to starting problems

Yesterday, I was using the TO-30 to move a much younger tractor that wouldn't start. In the process, smoke rolled out from under the hood and upon inspection, I fried one of the leads from the switch to the starter. I guess the insulation on the wire was missing and it grounded out I traced the power and found that it is good going into the gear shift activated starter. Power in, but not out. Any chance I fried the shift activated starter? How tough is it to replace this, if necessary.

Thanks for any ideas.

You might get by with cleaning and adjusting the switch.

It has to make solid connection or it will arc and burn.

Its easy to replace. Remove wires. Then unbolt plate. It is an upside down push button starter switch. Im sure they are here on the parts site and also most auto parts stores would have similar. Just bring the old one with. When you reinstall, you have to make sure the forward/aft play is set correctly for the linkage to work properly.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
