I recently inherited a ford 861. According to the person that
gave it to me, it has sat and not been started in 5+ years. I put
a new battery on. The starter mechanism looks new. There is
electricity getting to the starter, I"ve even had full voltage
running to the brushes and the armature. When I push the
ignition nothing happens and the battery drops to zero voltage.
(12 volt system). I"ve tapped the starter while trying all of this.
Not sure what it could be, I"m at a loss.

Check the engine to make sure it isn't stuck from sitting. Put the tranny in the highest gear and rock the rear wheel to see if the fan moves. Hal
