If the previous owner kept the new wiring to specs you wont need a battery to start the tractor if you just want to see if it runs before buying a battery.
Its Magneto powered so all you have to do is remove the starter belt and just pull start it.

Pull start? There's no pull cord on it. It needs a battery anyway just want to know what size.
You've never seen one of these?!
I recommend as big a battery as you can get.

So, a car battery will work too?

Do you have a puller?
Do you have a puller?
I got the nut off, what kind of puller do I need?

Can anyone tell me where the ground cable is supposed to be mounted on the frame? It was missing when I got the Husky.

Sorry I missed this,
Ground generally gets bolted to one of the dash side bolts,

So, I'm trying to figure out the wiring here, I attached some pictures. Also have a wiring diagram I downloaded somewhere but it doesn't show the wire coming from the engine/ignition coil? See page 15

This is my current wiring setup, problem is my combined ignition/starter switch, four wires and no markings.

You may be better off taking all that wiring out and going back to the oem key and push button starter.
The original push button starter acted as the solenoid so you could eliminate the one that someone cobbled on there.

I was thinking of just adding a (universal) push button switch for the starting and using the key switch just to turn on the ignition. Bolens 1000, can you tell me where the wire goes that comes from theignition to the right side of the engine? I don't see this on the diagram anywhere?
