Farmall 560 wount stay running

Aaron Goodell I just replaced my push button and ignition on my 560. I have the wires hooked up correctly on both but it dies when I release the push button. I checked all my connections from the ignition to the Gen. I also looked at the coil. I am thinking that I have a ground some place but canít find it. Any ideas????
jim Sounds like an open ballast resistor. Just check with a test light for power on both sides of it or put a temporary jumper wire across to see if it runs. When you are running the starter the resistor is bypassed for hotter ignition and as soon as you let go of starter current has to flow through the resistor.
gerald white hi. the easy start system is a 6 volt ignition coil and a ballast resistor. when you turn the key to start this gives 12 volt via ignition starter circuit. then it (RUNS on 6 volt). it could be the ballast resitor, or, a bad, dirty connection, broken feed wire, alarm circuit (immobilized). take a note of colours for the wire and trace it back the best you can and check the whole length including plugs and sockets. also before taken any wires off the ballast resistor make a note of the colours, very important. gerald
