Ford 1715 electrical problem

I have a Ford 1715. New battery, ground cable, and switch. When I turn switch on, warning lights come on, but go off when switch is moved to start or preheat position. When switch is in start position, nothing happens. No click no motor turn over, nothing. When I hook charger up at 250 amp engine start, motor turns over, but slowly. With switch on, if I unplug fuseable link wire, warning lights go off. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I used jumper cables from negative post of battery to body of starter with no results.

Are the part of the starter and the mounting point on the engine where the two come together clean, bright and shiny? Sometimes you can get rust, dirt or paint that blocks the flow of electricity.

I took the starter off and ran it with the battery charger. Starter motor and solenoid worked fine. I bypassed clutch and PTO lockout switches. Still nothing happens.

I think I will take the starter off and try running it with the battery charger.

Tried jumper cables (both clamps ) from neg terminal to starter ground. Nothing. Every time I tried starting with 250 amp charger, I grounded on the exhaust flange.

It could be the starter itself is bad.

The ground cable is connected to the front axle support and the front axle support is bolted to the engine block. The connection between the front axle support and block has been a problem due to corrosion. Try running a booster cable from the negative post on the battery to a ground on the starter housing.

Yes, it did the same with the old switch. New switch made no difference. About a week ago, I tried starting the tractor without preheating, its 90 degrees here in Louisiana. The engine turned over as normal but did not start. So turned key to preheat. When I turned back to start, nothing. Tried battery charger at 250 amp engine start. Engine barely turned over. Replaced battery. Same results. Replaced ground cable. Same results. Replaced switch. Same results. I am at my wits end.

Did it do that before replacing the switch/ why did you replace the switch. Did you try putting the old switch back in after replacing battery and ground cable. Lastly where did you get the new switch. Now I answered your question with 4 more questions LOL.
