Customer Question

I have a New Holland TC-40. Tractor has had numerous starting (actually, not starting) problems. Our local New Holland dealer had it for a week, charged $600 plus, and all they said they did was to replace the battery post clamp. Still having the problem.
It appears that under unknown circumstances, the fuse for the Operator safety system and fuel solenoid blows when I try to start the tractor. The manual calls for a "8 amp Circuit Breaker" as opposed to a regular fuse, but our trusty local mechanics don't seem to know what that is. Therefore, I've been using a 7.5 amp fuse. This morning, after I finished mowing the orchard and the tractor had been sitting in the drive for about an hour (off), I turned the key: all lights came on as usual, but if I try turning the key I hear the familiar "pop" as the fuse blows. Please help!
