This morning I started trouble shooting my starter. I bypassed the solenoid with a set of jumper cables and got nothing. So then I removed the starter and tested off the tractor. It barely spun over then quit altogether. So I bought a new starter and installed it this afternoon. I hit the starter button and the motor turned over so fast I couldn't believe it! In the 10 years I have owned this tractor I have never heard it crank over so fast! Not even with the plugs out! So then I grabbed a spark plug to see if I had spark. I hit the starter button and quickly shocked myself with the plug wire! I had plenty of spark. So I put the plug wire back on the plug, pulled the choke out half way and hit the starter. It started right up! It is even 32 degrees and the tractor was not on life support with block heaters. I guess the front mount distributor got wet from the melting snow becuase I didn't do anything to it. It probably just dried itself out.
thanks to all who helped with suggestions. I am back in business!
