Massey 1085 starting

farmer girl I am trying to help my sister sell some of her husbands farm equipment and I am having trouble starting his 1973 (?) Diesel Massey 1085. It seems like I am missing something: PTO is off, clutch is in, gear shift is in center neutral position, brake in but nothing happens when I turn key switch ??? Sorry for the dumb question, he used the tractor last fall but is now not able to communicate. No one I asked seems to know.
Thank you !

ponymare The clutch safety switch may not be working, check the wires for good contact. It may be other things, but that would be a place to start.
