I hope I'm following this correctly...

I assume you want to ADD a solenoid to a Ferguson with a shift handle starter. This is for using a standard automotive type solenoid that grounds through the mount bracket. The original switch must be in place and operative. It may need to be cleaned and adjusted. The reason it needs to be there is to provide neutral start protection. Those switches are troublesome, but going through a solenoid will greatly reduce the amp load and prolong the switches life.

1. Mount the solenoid in a convenient place. The base must be secured tightly to clean metal as it provides the ground.

2. Remove the battery cable and accessory feed wire from the original start switch.

3. Reconnect the cable and wire to one of the large posts on the solenoid.

4. Connect the starter cable to the other large post.

5. Run a 14ga or larger wire from the coil side of the ignition switch to one side of the original starter switch.

5. Run another #14 wire from the other post of the original starter switch to the S terminal of the new solenoid.

There is no connection for the oil switch, there was never an oil switch on one of these tractors.

Forgot to mention, if the solenoid has an "R" terminal, it will not be used.

thanks steve! the original post was talking about adding an oil switch in, so it would cut power to the starter switch, and eliminate the bumping of the starter shifting out of reverse. you made it perfectly clear though how the wiring would go, adding an oil pressure switch would be pretty simple now that i understand the wiring. thanks a lot man!

The o/p switch is plumbed into the oil line going to the gauge. You will also need a bypass switch while starting the engine.
Once running, it works well.
The ford starter relay is as stated. My thought being that the Ford starter solenoid is a lot easier to replace than the starter
switch. The dash has an idiot light for the charging system, an oil pressure gauge and a water temp gauge.
On a side panel is mounted an hour meter, amp gauge, fuel gauge, and a master disconnect hooked up to the ground cable.
On one of the rear arms is amounted a Fire Extinguisher. The seat is a Rest-O-Ride and is mounted on an adjustable plate that can
be adjusted to slide back and forth. I also have a seat riser that might also be added to give upward adjustment to the seat.
email is open, this thread is contaminated with the multiple postings above.
