Looks like what's left of a relay or an interconnect switch. Can you tell if it was mounted anywhere?
I looked today and it seems to be just hanging there and not mounted anywhere. At least not anymore if it was before.
Is it possible that there's some safety switch that it might be from? PTO safety switch, Neutral safety switch, Oil level sensor, Etc...
I believe it is a safety switch of some sort. But no clue which one. I doubt it is an oil level sensor since it has a oil pressure sensor that isn't hooked up and has no sort of indicator to even be hooked to. Not even a loose wire that will even come close to hooking up to it. From what I can tell the oil pressure sensor was never hooked up on these models.
Glad you figured out what you had.It's not a bad looking tractor.
Thanks. Just hope it don't nickle and dime me to death trying to get it going as I look further into it.
Just purchased new oil, oil filter, spark plugs today. Still need to get Air filter and fuel filter though.
gonna drain old gas and put what I have into it hopefully tomorrow night and see if I can at least get it running before I decide on whether further repairs/purchases are worth my time and money. In other words the electric PTO
. Dang that thing is pricey. $170 from ebay for a Stens. And like $300+ for OEM part.
