530 series won't shift to "S". Is it required to be in S to start? It will shift into all other gears. New to Case tractors and I know it's been sitting for a few years.. thanks for your help

You only hold it in that position while you turn the key with the other hand.

It won't "shift" into the S slot like you would think. Not like the other slots where you're actually shifting gears. It just
goes into the slot slightly until it contacts the safety switch under the cover to make the electrical connection, forcing you to
take the tractor out of gear before starting. Most of my tractors with that style switch, I have to hold it against the button to
get the tractor to start because it won't stay in by itself. Sometimes you gotta hold the shift lever in with your knee so you can
turn the switch with your right hand and run the choke with your left. If you have no wires coming out of the plug in the cover by
the shift tower, then somebody probably bypassed the safety switch at an earlier time.

You don't have to turn the key with the other hand. Just turn key to run position. When you push the lever to the spring loaded S position the button switch on the shift cover, activates the starter solenoid.

So you are saying it is supposed to work as a momentary switch to start the tractor instead of using the key switch. I as well as several others thought it was just a safety switch. So far I have not seen one that works that way. All of the ones I have been around you had to hold the shifter and turn the key to start position. Lee

My start/run key switch must not be the original. I have to use two hands to start my 530. The starter button on my Ford 8N works as a neutral start button. Now I have two tractors I won't run over myself while starting it standing beside it. It's a bad habit I haven't broke yet.

The idea on my 530 and 630 is you simply turn the key on and let it go. Then (likely with the same right hand) just push the gear lever into the S position. I does not slip in or engage like a gear. Simply push it against a spring to actuate the starter.

The early ones was actually just a starter, key on then push the shifter up to start, my 630 is that way, I also ran several early 530CK backhoes that was the same way,, they changed it so the lever would stay in the "S" position on later units as I am sure more than once when shifting someone did starer damage with the engine running

Mystery solved. I have number of the little 30 series tractors around here and non of them will start with the lever. Was beginning to think some of these guys don't know what they're talking about. Thanks to you Thomas, I've been schooled once again. I guess I don't have any early 30 series. All of mine start with the key.

I Was rereading this thread and thought I would add another comment, if the cap has the type switch that has a spring load in the start position and it works the other way requiring two hands,the problem can be remedied by moving the wire on the ignition switch from the S terminal to the I terminal. It would be very easy to make an error when replacing the ignition switch and end up with the starting procedure many of you are describing

Thanks mEl, This has been gnawing at the back of my mind. I was wondering where I would find an original switch. Your resolution would be the easiest to do.
