Does anyone have a wiring diagram for 1975 MF 14?

I was trying out the tractor after the piston job, all of a sudden the tractor died. No sputtering , it just stopped. I figure the engine must have been runnig off the battery and that the battery was dead. I charged the battery overnight and tried to crank the tractor in the morning. Nothing! No power anywhere! I tried the pto clutch(electric)no juice there,  the selenoid doesnt click. I dont have lights installed yet but they would probably not work either. I suspect a faulty battery groud or ignition switch. I want to rewire the whole thing and get rid of all the connectors and butted wires in there to clear out all the problems once and for all.

Check your neutral safety switch.The tractor won't do anything unless you have the clutch pushed in. If the actual switch is bad just connect the 2 wires together and it should start.

Check the amp meter, mine was open circuit.

Jump the 2 terminals bypasses it.

Yep ive just bypassed over it

None of my switches are connected. Tarctor did run before.

 

The ignition switch was fried. I installed a new one but the pin pattern on it was diffeerent and I need to figure out where ive gone wrong. Now the engine cranks but ive no pto clutch and no spark. Its getting cold outside this week and we are getting snow every day now so Ill have to wait for better weather to fix this and hope the snow melts so I can drive it back to the barn where ill work on it and store it for the winter.
