Hi All, I'm a new WD owner. I have a pull rod type starter switch. The other day I started the tractor and it stalled so I pulled the rod again to start it and the switch started sparking inside the switch housing. And the starter will not engage. The sparking pitted out the connections. I have filed them down and even tried a new switch and nothing seems to be working. I tightened the screws up good on the switch to the starter and that didn't help. The connection gets so hot it starts to weld the connections while never engaging the starter. I'm hoping I do not need a new starter. How can I jumper the starter to see if it will turn over. Would I jumper to the old wiring posts? if so which one(s) anyone have a picture to help. I do have good battery cable connections and a good ground.
