Good.

Verify that your tractor is positive ground ( the cable from the positive battery post is attached to the frame of the tractor)

Now, get a piece of wire about 3 feet long and put alligator clips on both ends. Then, get your meter ready to do that same check .

Start the tractor.

As soon as it stops, check the voltage at the coil just like you did before.


If you have no voltage, hook one alligator clip to the NEGATIVE battery post ( if your tractor is positive ground) and the other end to the stud on the coil.

If the tractor runs, you have isolated the problem as being between the battery and the coil. Check each connection until you find the problem. ( HINT: check the ignition switch first)

OK, one less part to worry about!

Use the jumper wire and eliminate everything between the battery and coil.

Don't leave that jumper hooked up more than a minute or two w/o the engine running.
