Sears 12/6 starting problem

2516 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  mcavvie
I have a Sears 12/6 tractor, that i am having a starting problem with. I hooked in a battery, turned the key and got nothing. Both the solenoid and The starter work as i have already tested the starter, and the solenoid is brand new and wired correctly. All the fuses are good too. I didnt even get any reading form the amp gauge that it was drawing power when you first turn the key to on. Can someone post a wiring diagram for this tractor, i really want to get this thing running. Thanks!

If you aren't getting at least a click, it's time to check the ignition switch or connector IF the fuses are good.
A fuse might have been good until you turned the key on.

Post the Sears 917.xxxxxx number to see if there's a schematic available.

Typically, the ignition key S terminal will deliver 12V through the clutch switch and then through a PTO/attachment switch and then to the solenoid.
Usually, it's a white wire.

In the mean time, you can jumper 12V to the small terminal of the solenoid and see if the engine cranks.
