I’m at my wits end on the starter. It would not turn the motor with the plugs in. I took it to an automotive repair shop and he checked the armature, changed brushes and so on. Put it on and the same thing. I put it under no load and as it spun it drained down and I a bolt sparking on a band. I took the bolt out and it turned the motor with plugs in. Thinking I fixed the problem, I took it out to paint the tractor. When I put it back, it would not turn the motor. After a few times taking it apart cleaning and making sure the connections were good with NO result, I bought a good used one off eBay. I got it today and it did the same thing. I even jumped it with a 12V car battery! Let me know of any ideas.

When you painted the tractor, did you paint the hole the starter fits in? You need good contact there to complete the circuit- make that hole shine!, starter case too.

It is a model “C” with a 6V push button system. I have a new switch on mine and after rustred’s reply, I put the new switch on the one from eBay and still the same. Also, I did not paint the starter hole.

what size wires do you have on the battery? If they are car type cables they are too light. Have you cleaned the battery connections? Bob

Put some 00 battery cables on it with soldered lugs and clean all surfaces including where its grounded as paint and rust make good insulators. Hal
