I'm hoping to find someone familiar with this 7304 (with bucket & backhoe) the starter quit the other day i was able to get it going with a couple taps. Replaced it. and now I have power and a small single click when i turn the key. Battery tests good same with the alternator. Fuses are also good. There's only 3 hook ups, the harness that clips in. The battery cable and alternator. I've looked for electrical blueprints on this but information seems limited.
Thank you in advance

Hello MASFIVE08, welcome to the tractor forum.

That sounds like a safety switch problem. Your tractor probably has 3-4 safety switches that prevent starting, maybe more.
1) Seat
2) Brake or Clutch
3) Deck/PTO
4) Reverse

The seat switch is the most frequent culprit. I would start with the seat switch. Disconnect the connector plug nd put a jumper wire in the connector that goes back to the tractor.
