 240 Massey

I have a new to me 240 Massey. 94 model will start by jumping the solenoid on the starter. What things should I look for. Runs good after starting. Any idea's would be great.

I would start looking to see if the ignition switch is providing power out. Then check to see if the Neutral Safety switch is operating. It could be out of adjustment or just not working. Some tractors the switch makes the circuit contact, others have to be open. On another page I found:
Search yahoo for 'massey 240 neutral safety switch check'
The wiring runs through the PTO safety switch through Neutral safety switch then to the starter.
JACUSTOMER-kjsn232c- :

"Hey Curtis, figured it out. Found the wire running from the solenoid went through the PTO switch and then through the neutral safety switch to the ignition switch. The safety switch at the PTO is where the problem is at. Didn't have a wiring diagram,but I figured it out. I've ordered a new switch. Sorry my first tractor. Thanks for your help."
