8n wiring 12v conversion

Mike M My son pulled all the wiring when he painted my 52 ford 8n side distributer I HAVE TRIED TO FOLLOW A diagram, but still having trouble, as soon as battery is hooked up it starts up with out pushing down on start switch. It has a new start switch. My diagram wrong? I'm just dumb? Tractor looks great.HELP! HELP! ANY ONE HAVE A COMPLETE AND SIMPLE WIRING SCHEMATIC OR WIRE BY WIRE INSTUCTIONS

KCM Don't have a diagram handy, but maybe I can help. If it is still a 6 volt system, or even on some 12 volt sytems, there should be a wire that runs from the small terminal on the starter solenoid to the push button switch on the transmission. No power should be connected to the wire, as it grounds out to activate the starter solenoid. If it still turns over when the battery cable is connected, then there is a short in the solenoid, wire, or button. Disconnect each component, starting with the button, to find which is shorted out.

If it is the new style 12 volt system, the solenoid needs power to activate. In this case, the factory starter button will not work, and a seperate button is used to supply 12V power to the small solenoid terminal when pushed. Connecting the small terminal to the factory starter push button will have no effect and it simply would not activate the solenoid.

One other note. Make sure the battery cable is connected to one big terminal of the solenoid, and the starter to the other. Do not connect the battery cable to the same terminal as the starter. This will bypass the solenoid causing the starter to run continuously.

Good Luck.
