Hey Guys-I posted this in my Wheel Horse 656 Restoration post but received no replies-I've checked the wiring diagram for the 656 tractor and see no solenoid for the starter-does this ignition switch carry all the amperage for the starter?

There is no solenoid pictured in the wiring diagram-it is not built into the starter-the large cable coming from the starter positive contact seems to go thru a grommet in the hood stand and go directly to the ignition switch-the switch is large, although it only has 3 wire connectors. I wish I had a picture of it. I don't see any evidence of a solenoid anywhere-not even a place that it would be mounted on the tractor-Thanks-AL

I'm not familiar with your WH,but my Sears Suburbans with a starter-generator have no solenoid,and use an ignition switch with heavy enough contacts to handle starting current,so its possible yours may be set up in similar fashion.. you can ADD a solenoid pretty easily if you wish,then any switch can be used,from a simple push button ,or whatever you wish./.if you want to keep it 100% original ,you'll need the right ignition switch..

I think your right-the switch is original and HEAVY DUTY. I'm going to hook it up just as they have it in the diagram. Thanks-AL
