Appreciate the help. I used a meter to test battery & have just been using a trouble light tester to see if/where I have "juice". Tractor has run "as wired" for years so I'm assuming problem is in a wire and/or one of the components. I have wire from solenoid going to starter button and wire going to negative post on battery ??? On my 3 post resistor the bottom post hooks to key, "bat" post on regulator & solenoid (through coil on top of resistor block). Upper left post of resistor to coil. Upper rt. post of resistor to key.
After cleaning more connections I now have "juice" showing at coil & 2 upper posts of resistor block when the key if off (no continuity between 2 post on key). When I turn key on no juice to upper 2 posts.
Sorry I'm such a dunce with this, but sure do appreciate all the help.
