On my 801 Ford it has a starter button mounted on top of the transmission. There is no wire connected to it. Does anyone know what wire is supposed to go to this switch?

Check out the wiring diagram for 12 volt systems at the Vintage Ford Tractor Resource: http://members.aol.com/naa60512/naa.htm (electrical systems). Also heed warning from Stump Jumper about safety and starting in gear. If the starter switch on the tranny is right, it should only work in Neutral.

The wire that goes to the starter switch is Red with a Blue tracer.

YOU SHOULD TRY TO GET THE ORIGINAL START SW INTO USE, FOR THE SAFETY FEATURE OF IHIBITING START UNLESS YOUR SHIFT LEVER IS OUT OF GEAR. SOME OF THESE FORDS CAN START AND MOVE OUT REAL QUICK IN GEAR. THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS OF WIRING IN THAT SOLENOID. A UNIVERSAL SOLENOID, THAT IS ISOLATED PROVIDES THE MOST ALTERNATIVES.

the wire that is to be there comes from the starter solenoid. usually what i have seen is that the starter solenoid has been replaced and it is the wrong one. the original type used by ford was ground insulated and the start button was used to ground the circuit so the solenoid would close.if the starter is currently turned by a key switch or a push button the solenoid is not the right one. i guess it could be the right one depending on how the solenoid is activated if it is activated by electrical power it is the wrong one

It also could be the correct solenoid activated by the wrong key switch with a 'start' position and the solenoid coil grounding wire going directly to the chassis. There should be continuity between the starter button terminal & ground when the button is pressed. Chances are this switch failed, and the tractor was re-wired rather than swapping out the failed component. Replacing the starter button requires removing the trans. cover. This will also restore the Neutral Safety aspect of the original wiring scheme.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
