The voltage regulator is not in the ignition circuit.
When you press the neutral safety switch, it grounds the solenoid. When the solenoid is grounded, the bendix engages the ring gear.
Put the tractor in neutral. Turn the key on. Ground the small wire on the BACK of the solenoid to the block w/ a screw driver. What happens?
