Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. I found a diagram but it's not the best in visibility. Does the tractor turn over with the kill wire connected to the coil or does it do nothing ?

If it does nothing and you have to jump the starter to get it to fire I'd check the fuse near the solenoid..
