Based on the advice that I got from my last post, I went out and bought a new 6v battery. The Cub cranks over now, and I also cleaned out the cut-out with a vaccum, and touched up the contacts. The cut out is working fine now, but when I was removing it, I noticed a wire coming out of the main harness that led to nowhere. There were no terminals that I noticed that were lacking a wire, and the headlamp wires are accounted for. Any thoughts on where this wire goes? Also, from my last post, I learned that the cut-out was only found on the pre-1950's models, but the serial # on the tractor indicates that it's a 1951.........?? There is still an electrical drain somewhere, because when I am attaching the neg. battery terminal, there is a little arcing even though the main power switch is off.
The only dumb questions are those never asked.

First of all, are you connecting the battery with the positive to ground? You will have to start disconnecting wires one at a time and then connecting the battery to see where the current drain is. Once you have found the wire that is carrying the drain, trace it back to the source of the problem.
Bigdog If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
