My 8n will not turn over, nothing happens, had battery checked, OK, replaced soloniod, replaced starter, still nothing. Have not tried starter button. Have 6 volts to soloniod from battery and on back from starter. Any ideas of what to try next.

Phil..... ....you write..... "replaced soloniod, replaced starter, still nothing. Have not tried starter button"..... ..RED-FLAG..... when replaceing the 3-terminal solenoid, make certain that the little middle terminal faces the engine block and is hard to gitt-too. Otherwize yer solenoid will NEVER operate.

You can double-check yer solenoid starter button by grounding the little middle terminal with a long screwdrive blade. (make certain yer tranny is in NEUTRAL) The starter solenoid is internally HOT and yer BIG THUMB switch by yer tranny shifter is nothing but a ground which causes the solenoid to operate..... ...Dell

put the tractor in 3rd. or fourth gear with switch off. rock it back and fourth about 2 feet as it might be hung up in the flywheel. this rocking coudd un stick it. also you can rap the starter 3 or 4 times with a peice of 2 by four. RP

How did you check the battery? With a hydrometer after charging it? Are the cables & all connections clean bright & tight? After you are 100% sure you do not have a battery problem are sure you do have good cables/connections, jump the starter. Put the tractor in neutral. Attach a jumper cable to the lug on the starter from another battery (6 or 12, doesn't matter, positive or negative, doesn't matter) Check again that the tractor is in neutral. Then, attach the other jumper cable to the frame of the tractor. You have just bypassed the neutral safety switch & the starter should turn over. If it does, then you are on your way to isolating the problem. If it does not turn over, I'd suspect a bad ground between the starter & the block before I'd suspect a bad rebuilt starter.
