 B2400 Start Sequence

I just purchased a B2400 (I am the one who rolled the tractor when it popped out of gear) and I hope someone will be able to provide some help.

My owners manual says to hold the key to heat the glow plugs for just a few seconds before you turn the key all the way to the start position. When I hold the key for 3 to 5 seconds in the "heat glow plug" position and then turn the key to start the engine, the engine does not crank. I hear a click, but nothing happens. I then turn the key back off and hold it in the "glow plug heat" position and try to crank it again. Still, the engine does not crank. I generally have to hold the key in "glow plug heat" for 20 plus seconds and then when I try to start it cranks and starts immediately.

Is there something in the start sequence that will not allow the engine to crank until the glow plugs are hot enough to allow the engine to start?

Should my engine crank after only holding in the glow plug heat position for only 3 to 5 seconds?

I am heating glow plugs much longer than the manual says that I should to get the engine started.

Should the engine crank even if the glow plugs are not hot?

The engine does not respond in the way the owner's manual describes the start procedure.

This is my first tractor, I have a lot to learn.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Larry J

I think it should crank regardless of glow plug, check all the safety switches to be sure the pto is out, clutch depressed etc. Your manual should describe this operation. You may have a bad switch or starter.

You need to push in the clutch...my B2150 won't turn over regardless of the glowplug time until you depress the clutch.
