Customer Question

I have a john deere Ct322I'm having multiple issues with it, The most impeding issue is that it is very difficult to start, I got it to start today when I was playing with the control stick, The right track control stick. I would turn the key and it cranks over, I then move the stick back and forth until the engine kind of labors down while its cranking. I let go of the key so that its in the on position and Boom it starts. I'm stumped. I ran a new wire to the shut off solenoid as the one that was there was kind of questionable. Oil psi is good, The light goes away while cranking. And when its running it sounds fantastic. When I'm cranking it over there is no smoke coming out the stack. yesterday it would just die out of nowhere. run it for 5-10 seconds boom dead. sounds like someone was turning the key off. THe day prior to that, the park brake kept coming on. I fixed that issue with rewiring the ignition switch. So that isn't an issue. When the machine is running its a champ, It labors down if I am really trying to dig into something. When I shut it off, ITs a fight to get the thing started again. What am I missing?

I've had this question posted for a while now, I do need to speak or get assistance from someone who knows these machines. If you are the guy, let's do this. If not I would prefer to speak with someone who has the experience with these skid steers.
