It could be numerous things! Poor grounding connection at the frame. Poor battery connections at the terminals. Loosened connection at the solenoid. Floating short in battery.

Look at the obvious and by process of eleimination.

Try cleaning up the battery terminals and cable connectors and clean the ground cable at the frame and positive at the starter. Sounds to me like you are not getting a good connection.

You should be able to take all the componants to the parts store and they should be able to test them for you. It might be as simple as the battery being bad. Ford products used to be bad about batteries, if they were bad, ie a bad cell you couldn't jump them at all. Once you put a new battery it would start right up. It had something to do with the battery being shorted.

Take the battery in and have it tested first, that is the easiest, then look toward the starter, it is much harder to take off. Good luck! I hope that will do the trick for ya!:D

So the motor's cold, but when you try to start it the starter gets warm. Right?

If so, it is probably bad, but just for giggles, check where it mounts to the block. If it grounds through the mounting bolts, and there is bad connection, that may do it also.

jbetts,
Now may not be the best time to tell you this as you are spending money fixing your starter, but go to J.D. Parts on line and check the monthly specials. They are offering a 20% off coupon on chrome hubcaps embossed with the Deere name. I remembered you were looking for hubcaps a while ago. Best of luck in getting your fixed!

so you can be doing this :tractorsm

jbetts,
It is 20% off and you need to go to Deere parts and print out the coupon. Check to be sure it is good in Canada before you commit yourself to an order to avoid surprises.
