316 no electric

Ronald Cutler I just got a JD 316, turns over, but will not start, no spark, or electric anywhere, If I run 12V directly to starter, it turns over, don't know where to start. This tractor is nothing like my 140. so i guess i need a wiring diagram. does the black box control everything? any help would really be appericated. Thanks Ron C.
Dale G. Basgall Ronald : Does the engine rotate using the ignition key switch ? If not there are several safety switches that allow starter solenoid current to flow.

First is the seat switch under the seat, make sure it's plugged in and working. Try to start the tractor with the brake pedal pushed in.

Try that and if you need to go further write back on the forum.

Ron Cutler Thanks Dale, I bypassed the seat switch, & made sure the brake pedal was down still no fire, can't get any curent thru the electrical system,. Ron C.
