 Stupid problem - fixed

I'll post this in the event that it can help one of you.
A few weeks ago, I went to fire up my D2650FD and got a very weak "click", then nothing. So I checked the battery and the voltage measured ok. I tested the voltage at the starting motor, again ok. So I took the starting motor off, and tested it - the solonoid acivated and it spun up fine. So I figured that it just wasn't working under a load so I took it to my local rebuilder. He said it was fine. I put it back on the tractor - nothing.

Turns out to be the battery ground. After 28 years apparently the battery box is not a good ground. I put on a battery ground wire directly to the frame, and ....
It starts like a new tractor. I love my big blue tractor!

You will find faulty grounds here often. It is easy to forget the ground side is also important.

Glad you got it working.

 Stupid problem - fixed

If it's any consolation, in my early tractor days I pulled that immensely heavy and greasy starter off TWICE to bring to a different electric shop -- before my farmer-neighbor's kid suggested I check the battery cables.
