I'm not sure when or why things were changed. My dad actually drew the diagram. One thing I know for sure is the starter button can NOT be pressed (locked out) when in gear. When in neutral, the starter button can be pressed and the starter will crank but the engine will only start when the ignition switch (key switch) is turned on.
Another thing he added, and I'm not sure if the diagram depicts this, is a toggle switch to disable the ignition switch. My grandparents had 53 grand children so he wanted to ensure the it couldn't accidentally be started by a youngin playing on the tractor.
