I have replaced key switch relay and solenoid and get nothing. I found oil safety switch was bad so I jumped it I check oil always befoRe starting. Since I have done this I get relay the relay to click. It will start by jumping lugs on solenoid and cut off by key. I also found someone already had jump neutral switch out and I know seat switch works.could starting side of pto switch be bad and how can I check.

:WRS:       It would be helpful to know what year and model you have, not all :wh: are wired the same.

With any electrical problem the first step is to clean and tighten all electrical connections.

I don't own this particular model, but the 310 and 312 that I own both have two small wires going to the solenoid, one is a ground and the other comes from the ignition switch.

Your wiring diagram shows that the wire to the switch is routed through the clutch pedal switch and the POT switch and then to a relay. Clutch must be depressed and PTO off. Be sure the ground wire is connected to the solenoid. With the transmission in neutral take a small jumper wire from the battery "+" to the small purple wire at the solenoid, if it closes and the engine turns over then it is good. If not, back up to the next component and so forth until you find the problem.

Look this wiring over

There are 2 illustration for the starter circuit. The low oil switch powers the relay when the oil is low and opens the circuit to the starter solenoid.- starter no worky

      Up next on restoration list is a 1986 Wheel Horse 312-A. This will be a bottom up restoration, with a bit of customization as well. Here's where I am starting.
      A couple of things I've decided already: 1) I like the K motors better than the Magnum's, so the K motor is staying. It'll be rebuilt before going back on the machine. 2) Paint will be a custom paint job. I will once again try my hand at HVLP instead of my normal rattle cans. God help me! 3) Along w2ith the custom paint, the decals will also be a custom set. 4) The deck will probably be changed to a 42" RD instead of the SD that is on it. I'm sure I'll think of more things to change, but at the moment that's it.
      @Vinylguy Terry, I'll be in touch soon to discuss.
      Stay tuned...
