Hello Sportsman99, welcome to the tractor forum.

The only test that I know of is to apply 12V to the solenoid to see if it functions. Maybe someone else knows of another method to check solenoids??

Are they simply twelve volt solenoids? I wouldn't do that until I confirmed they're not controlled by an ECU somewhere. Sometimes the coils aren't intended to operate on battery voltage.

I checked ohms. Mine read 8 ohms. Check continuity from pin to case of solenoid, Infinite ohms. I touched to 12v battery, the solenoid operated by pushing the pin out. I didn't leave voltage on very long. Not sure where I went wrong before. When I applied voltage nothing happen. Could been a weak connection. I have the other 2 on top to test. Looks like I will have to pull fuel tank to remove them. This tractor set up for a long time with water in torque converter cavity. So it's a rusty mess to clean up. Thanks for responding.
