I just had the starter worked on last year to the tune of $150. Of course, that does not mean it has not corroded somewhere between then and now. Thanks

I did not switch it over. A previous owner did. I will say that usually it spins over a lot more than my Super C than has not been converted to 12 volt. I do have several other 6 volt tractors and some start easily and some not so much. I do not usually get much time out of a six volt battery and usually get more time out of a 12 volt battery.

I have been out of town for a few days and finally got back to my Super C. I started to take the saddle switch off but kind of a pain to reach that screw next to the tractor holding it on. So, before I did that I thought I would try one more thing. I connected the battery up with jumper cables and then pushed down the saddle swtich with a screw driver. The starter engaged and the tractor turned over.

It must be that just by pulling on the starter lever that the switch is not pushed down far enough. Maybe wear and tear over the years or whatever. Anybody else have that problem and any suggestions for solutions. I suppose on solution is to weld on and build up the piece that pushed down on the saddle switch. Any other thoughts?

The connections under the switch are all carboned up from arcing over the years. The switch needs to be removed, and the nub needs to be cleaned and filed smooth, and a new switch installed.

Two 1/2" bolts are all that hold the starter on. It's about the easiest thing to remove so you can get at that back screw on the starter saddle. It will take a whopping 5 minutes.

Thanks. I will do some cleaning. It is a fairly new switch. Yep, I have had the starter off before. About a year ago I had the starter all redone at a local shop to the tune of about $150, so I was a bit surprised when I tried it a couple of weeks ago after it had sat for six months or so and it would not start. Thanks again.

Put on a different saddle switch, and the tractor started. Do not know what is wrong with the old one.
