Yeh, i know but would like to run something by you guys,
Got a Ford 1200 (rebranded jap) tractor that some kids messed with the starter a while ago, something about a short and using the wires for the headlights to power the starter solenoid, ehh, i ordered a remade started, should be in by thrursday.
When the tep started dropping it became hard cranking, starter crank slow to stop, click, click said the soleniod, replace battery but starter still crank slow and sucked battery down fast, oh boy, starter drawing high amps, hooked up my gas powered jumper/charger, charge battery to full, use glow plugs and then cranked, it stalled the jumper and drained the battery in seconds, battery ground wire got very hot.
Am i correct in my thinking by replacing the starter and running a new wire from the battery to the ignition switch to the starter ? Can not find a manual for free off internet.
Before the question is asked the alternator is charging the new battery, i checked.
If i left anything out or missed anything please steer me right.
