Well I have finally used the tractor, but nothing changed, as far as the instruments, however last time I went to start it I only got a click from a relay under the Inst panel, so I took the panel out again, discovered the click from down by the floor, so I removed the part ot the panel I had previously cut off, for easier access to the fuse panel area & discovered, that I had forgotten about a big relay, with 4 ground wires on 1 of the bolts holding it in, proceed to remove it all & clean, l had previously removed the relay, but not the attached wires, found the 2 wire black plug full of dirt & the sealing material loose, cleaned & used the Resistol Silicon Liquid to re-seal the relay, disassembled the 2 wire black plug, cleaned contacts, put in di-electric contact grease & RTV where the wires went in so it won’t fill up with dirt again!! Used the Conductor-Lube on the other 2 posts, used broken ignition point file to clean the grounding spot, (which I had not previously done), re-used the Conductor Lube,on all , re-installed, star-washer, 4 grounds, flat washer & nut with its own star washer. Now TEST , got
“1” short crank of the motor (not enough to start) - quite, so used my own installed starter button & EVERY THING ELSE WORKED !!!! Now for some pictures!
