We purchased a Golden Jubilee and have a very difficult time getting it to start. If we dont get choke and gas mixture just right, battery will slowly crank down to nothing. Is there a secret to catching it correctly. Once started. it works great!!!
I am not a mechanic, but i can relate my story to you. I own a Ford 641 that would crank down the battery. I ended up narrowing the problem down to the starter. I removed it and hit it with 12 volt, but it wouldn't crank real fast. I had it rebuilt (about $50) and my tractor starts fine. This may or may not be your problem, but it is a start.

Thanks for the input. Is your tractor 6 or 12 volt? We are giving it some thought to upgrading to a 12 volt system. The 6 volt just doesnt have the power it seems. When you changed your starter, did it turn over faster?

My Jubilee is still 6 volt. It was covered with snow, 19 degrees, Dec 27 two years ago when I bought it. It started right up then and has everytime since. Tune it up, make sure the battery cables are 6 Volt heavy and short. If it's in good shape you can leave it original.

When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and
