Customer Question
I have a JD...

I have a JD 970 Compact Tractor with new battery. All safety switches work. The only problem is the "pull" signal is not working for the fuel shutoff solenoid. I can turn the key switch to run position and manually push the fuel solenoid rod and it will hold and allow the tractor to start. What do I need to check/change for this solenoid to work. A brand new solenoid acts no differently.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Hang on and let me look that up

Ok

You want to make it work, or go back factory? Locate the wire on the solenoid for the pul function, and route it to the motor side f the starter solenoid, this will energize it only when the starter is turning. This is the way Deere wires it on the diesel Gator.

On the Gator it is the white wire.

I'll have to look at this when I get home. It will be sometime this evening. This is a John Deere 970 Compact Tractor though, not a Gator
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

I know, but it has the Yanmar engine.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

I don't have service manual on the tractor to see where Deere would route it for start. They may have it wired that way, and the wire is off or broken.
