jd4020 start problem

eric I am having trouble starting my jd4020. I noticed that when I crank it that a jumper strap between one of the starter post to a post on the selenoid start to get hot and glows red. Is the starter bad ?
tomboy Could be that the nut holding that strap is loose, but a starter costs more, so its probebly that.
Gene Start by disconnecting the wire at that terminal and cleaning it up with fine sandpaper or crocus cloth and brush the terminal post itself with a fine wire brush and reconnect it snugly. You might just have some corrosion between the connecting surfaces. It might also be corrosion in the crimp between the terminal lug and the wire. If the wire is long enough, you can cut the existing terminal lug off and strip the insulation back and crimp on a new lug of the proper size (from an auto parts store). If neither works, you're probably into the starter.
jack What he's talking about is a metal strap, not a wire like a battery cable. Tomboy gave him some good advice, but a little brushing won't hurt any.
