I posted a few weeks ago about my 841 not starting. Engine died because it was cold and I didn't have enough throttle.
Tried to restart it and got nothing but a click. Was time for a new battery anyway, so I bought one. Still nothing but a click. Gauges and lights worked, but when I restored the tractor I didn't replace the battery cables. Posted here asking for suggestions and several thought it was bad ground, so I replaced the battery cables and the lead from the solenoid to the starter.
Still get the click. I put the tester on the starter side of the solenoid and it's showing 7+ volts. This is a 12v conversion, so I my question is: could the solenoid have some kind of resistor to reduce the voltage to the starter or is the solenoid bad? The starter smokes when I push the start button, which makes me confused as to whether this is a bad solenoid or a fried starter.
If it's the starter, is there an appreciable difference between the one sold by Just8ns and the one at NAPA, or AutoZone? NAPA would be cheaper for me since I wouldn't have to pay shipping to the house and shipping back on the core.
