Can't start the Super A. I took the starter off and lubricated and rebuilt the switch, now it doesn't take 50 lbs. of pressure to pull it anyway.
I also lubed the drive because it was stuck in the "out" position. The tip of the gears on both the starter and the flywheel are rounded a bit, but only about 10% of the teeth are affected.
I wire-brushed the cables to get better contact, and I can get it to turn over, but it wears down a brand new battery pretty fast, it takes a LOT to turn it over, I guess, and it's not firing at all.
The wiring on the tractor is in horrible shape, so I'll need to replace it, but does anyone have some troubleshooting tips? I need to replace the plug wires, that's for sure! I've got spark, but no joy
