I pulled the motor (FD590V Kaeasaki)and replaced the water pump. After reassembly i get no crank. I had someone help me so not sure if they reconnected all the wiring correctly.

I bought a new battery since mine was 5 yrs old anyway.

My tractor is the earlier serial no. range but my shop manual is for later sn's.

Trying to test the key switch 12 v supply red wire. It is between starter B post and B connection on key switch. There is a fusible link, I peeled back the heat shrink and it looks good.

The diagrams (the diagrams for both sn ranges are the same here from what i have found)show a connector labeled x1 which the digram shows as a single red wire connecting to a single red wire on B connection of key sw.

I have TWO red wires coming out of the loom into connector (X1)which connect to a single wire going to the switch and I have no voltage either side of the connector or at switch.

Why do I have two to one here vs. Diagrams 1 to 1 and no juice?

Thx P.J.

Try engaging the starter manually. Remove the small gauge single wire from the starters solenoid. Take a jumper wire and connect the terminal to the positive battery post. If it cranks the electric/mechanical part of the system is working. Just be careful because you bypassing safety systems.

Then check the wire that you removed with a voltage meter or test light. You should have battery voltage to that wire when you turn the key to crank the engine.

I jumped the solenoid with the purple wire on and the Starter just spun but did not engage. The battery was at 12.0 Volts so I thought it may affect the process and plan to fully charge the battery and try again.

12 volts is kind of low. Definitely charge the battery.

Sounds like the starter motor is engaging but not kicking out the drive gear. Can you post a picture of the starter to make sure you got the right wire? Do you have any power to the removed wire when you turn the key to start?
