    2155 not cranking

    Hello, I just purchased a 1987 2155 that I knew it was not working prior to the sale. I started playing around with it and what itís doing is when I turn the key to the left the lights go on on the instrument cluster but I get nothing when I turn the key to the right. I thought maybe the starter might be bad but I was able to crank the engine by jumping the connectors on the starter relay on the firewall. Iím wondering if there are any safety switches on the tractor that might disengage the starter switch?

    I have an owners manual coming but Iím super excited to get it running.

    Any help would be nice. Rick

    Welcome to GTT
    There's a neutral start switch located under cowling(key 6) that one straddles when seated on tractor that screws into very front of rockshaft housing. Sometimes switch can be removed then a sealing washer or 2 can be removed then switch re-installed & operate correctly

    Thanks. For testing purposes only can I short the wires coming from the harness to see if thatís my problem?

    You could jumper the two wires that connect to the neutral start switch, but be aware the tractor will be able to start in gear.

    OK so that's not my problem. The neutral safety switch is working just fine. But there is another switch located on the left side of the tractor just below the foot rest on what I think is the transmission that is connected in series to one of the wires that is part of the newtral safety switch that I cannot figure out if it's working or what it's for.

    It looks like one of the wires coming up from the neutral safety switch connects to two small black relays.

    My big question is the connections on the back of the starter switch. I cannot seem to get any power other than when I turn the key to the left and the indicator lights go on the instrument cluster.

    Depending on your tractors serial number there are several ground connections encircled in blue that could be open causing electrical problems

    I also see a fuse(key 2) associated with neutral start switch.

    My tractor was built in 1987 so it has a very low SN. I'm not sure where this diagram is located on the tractor? Also I'm trying to figure out the purpose for the other switch on the left side of the transmisson case just below the footrest. This switch is also connected to the neutral safety switch.

    Thanks, Rick

    Do you have a layout of the fuse panel?

    The other switch might be the one connected to wire #7? What is this for and does it connect to the same safety switch
