Have an 861 that the starting button has froze up on. Everything I've read says the button only provides temporary ground to the solenoid to get the starter moving and start the tractor. I tried jumping the single wire from the button to ground and nothing. Is there something else mechanical or electrical that prevents jumping the switch?

On the 801 series the ignition has to be turned on for the grounding of the starter wire to work so if your not turning on the ignition that is why it does not spin over.

That said a lot of times the starter button locking up like you say your is because something is off a bit with the shiftier so wiggle your shifter around some and see if that frees it up

The tractor has to be in neutral for the switch to move, obviously.
That's the point of the switch being mounted there.

Otherwise, if wired as original, the key has to be on as Old said.
That started with the x01 series. The x00 did not require the key on.
So if the wiring were changed to that style, the answer will change.
The thumb switch applied ground in both styles though.

In any case, if you're jumping the switch, make sure the tractor's
in neutral since you're by-passing the neutral safety switch.
We don't need anyone getting run over!
