 will not start

I have a MT 210D. I parked the tractor and the next day the tractor will not start. I have replaced the battery and it drains as soon as I hit the start key. I am suspecting something in the starter/alternator but I am unsure as to how to check these parts. I can jump start the tractor but I have to stall the tractor to shut it off. This is the first tractor I have ever had and need some guidance as to what I can do to fix it as well as take proper care of this old but mechanically sound tractor

Not sure what's meant by the new battery drains when asked to start it. If you can't shut down with the throttle, sounds like a linkage problem. At least you know the starter's OK.

I'd look for a service manual for it. I'd check the wiring to and from the battery. Then the operation of safety cutoffs, for instance, requiring the clutch pedal to be down. Then the keyswitch.

Good luck.

Has both of this problems been there the total time you have owned it?

If you recently bought it is asking the previous owner an option?

It seems odd the battery is being killed as soon as you hit the key to crank if yet you can jump it and it will start. So are you sure the battery you replaced it with is good, of sufficient strength and charged? I am guessing one of those is the start problem. Well, there is one other option. Do you connect the jumper cables to your batter or elsewhere on the tractor, even just the ground cable. If you are bypassing any cable while jumping the battery check that cable very carefully for poor connection. It is not impossible the cables are not connected well to the battery but you jumper cables are connecting well to the cables themself.

As to having to stall the tractor to cut it off...no idea if you tractor has an electic fuel shut off or just a mechanical one. Some especially few year old tractors just have a manual cut off. Look for a pull knob or tee handle. Some tractors had two, one for normal cut off and an emergency one. Some tractors today still have a mechanical in case the electrical fails to work and some don't. My guess if you have the pull type cut off there is some logo on the knob or right near it that might confirm that. Hope it is in English.

Since you have to jump it to start, and stall it to stop - "mechanically sound" might not be the most accurate assessment at this point.

If there is in fact a fuel cut-off solenoid, I'd say you have a bad ground. The starter motor needs a good ground to pull enough amps to turn the flywheel, the stop solenoid need enough to kick the throttle closed. Sounds like neither is happening. First place to start is the battery ground cable. Remove and thoroughly clean both ends. Grind off the paint down to bare metal where it bolts to the tractor frame. Weatherproof both ends, connect it back up. Do the same with the positive battery cable, with exception of the grinding part. Try again.
