once our Massey ferguson 1085 is hot and you turn it off, it will not start again. There is only one battery on it. we have just bought it so we are not sure if this is the problem or not. we replaced the battery and the alternator. Any suggestions?? Please!! This is very frustrating to my poor husband who is new to tractors. we have a small grass hay field that we usually pay someone to mow. This year we wanted to do it ourselves.

More info please. Does the starter make a clicking sound? or does it just seem not to have enough strength to turn the engine? or does it turn at regular speed, but the engine simply won't catch?

Doesn't that tractor have a pull cut off for the fuel to stop the engine? If so is he certain to push it all the way in before trying to start it? Is it possible the linkage on the fuel cut off is loose or worn and not opening back up fully?

You say the tractor only has one battery, is it supposed to have two?
The starter must turn the engine fast enough to generate enough compression to cause the diesel fuel to ignite.
I hope that maybe you have the problerm solved by now. You don't give us enough detail to make much of a judgment.
If you still need help let us know with more detailed information and we'll try to help.

IT's no fun on a holiday to have a broken tractor and things to do!

It would be good to know if it turns over or not when this happens. ....
