I want to move my start button from the
tranny up to the dash. Do I need to change
the solenoid?

Now why would you want to create a machine that someone (including you) could get hurt on. Mine had the starter on the dash when I bought it. After it started in gear and run over me, I changed it back to the interlock button with the gear shift. The reason the "N" was made this way and not other tractors of the time perios is because it was mounted from the side and not the rear like most others. Yep you can easily convert it, but I don't think many will want to take the responsabilty of telling you how including me. Sorry if this sounds a bit catty, but just trying to save your bones.

The starter button on the tranny is a significant safety item - won't let it start in gear. I would never do it (move it, that is), but your tractor - your choice.

Herman, I have three N`s. Two with the original starter button and one with the dash button that was bought that way. I use it seldom because I hit the starter with it in gear once while standing next too it. Ouch. I was lucky and didn`t get more than a couple of scrapes. It will be changed to original when time permits but will use the other tractors till then.

Yes you can do that and no you would not need a different soliniod but why do you want to change it. Its that way for a good reason and its safer the way is was made.

I'll assume you are unaware that the starter switch is also a safety interlock, and that if you move it, you will no longer have that safety feature. W/o the starter switch on top of the transmission, the tractor will start in gear.

Good advice from the others. My N, however, has the starter button on the dash (got it that way). I have added a battery disconnect as a safety measure that will not allow the tractor to be started when I'm done using it. I'm not so much concerned about me, but I have kids running around here that I do worry about. Cost for the feature is minimal, but you have to remember to break the connection when done using tractor.

It would depend on the solinoid. My 8n is a 1945 and the solinoid is not electricaly engaged. The starter button had an arm that actuates the solinoid. Mine has only two wires.

If yours has the three wire connection you would be fine. Then again, do you really want a tractor that can leave tire tracks going up your backside?
