I don't know how to jump the solenoid
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Does the positive battery cable go to a remote solenoid, or direct to the starter.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The positive cable connects on the bottom of the solenoid I think which is attached to the starter
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, to jump the starter, you touch the cable terminal to the single wire switch terminal. the same connection the key switch should make.

then ground the neg cable?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

No, you don't use the ground at all, you just want to use the wires on the solenoid! Cable terminal to the switch terminal.

I jumped the solenoid and it turns over
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

OK, making headway, good battery good cables, good starter. Did you find the ignition fuse and check it?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Where would I ind that?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

On the same terminal on the starter as the battery cable will be a smaller, usually red wire, this is the wire that will have the fuse. Can be anywhere from the starter to the dash!
