How do you start a BX23 with a bum neutral start switch?
I want to get the tractor down off the hill into my heated garage to replace the switch, but the problem is how do I move it from where it's setting into the garage when the switch won't let me start it???
I think when I replace it I will install a by pass switch for just this situation.

This is the second neutral switch that's gone bad on this tractor.
Come to think of it I don't really see why the neutral switch is needed on the BX23.
If you start it with the lever engaged instead of in the neutral position the tractor is not going anywhere unless the treadle petal is pressed down into forward or reverse.
Has anyone eliminated or by passed the neutral start switch on a BX23? ? ?

Lbrown59,

The switch has a plug on the end of it. It's very easy to jump the switch with a set of alligator clips.

Unplug the switch from the harness and jump across the terminals on the harness. It shouldn't take you any longer than five minutes.

I by passed the switch but it still didn't start.
Next Checked and found the pto had the mower engaged.
Disengaged the mower hit the key and tractor took off.
Should have thought of checking the pto lever first.DUH

Done about the same dumb thing with the BX1500 a couple of days ago.
Was smoothing out the slag drive way with the front blade.
Was digging in to deep and built up so much slag on both sides of the blade that I couldn't go forward or backward.
Went to raise the blade and it wouldn't move.
Got to checking and here the 3 point lever was clear to the back from having lifted the tiller. Returned the lever to center position tried the blade again and it lifted up and down just fine.

I'm one real sharp dude = I must be because I keep outsmarting my self. ....
