I am new to this site! I have a 1984 Case 444 Garden Tractor with the 14hp. Kohler engine. I have a starting problem with the tractor. When you turn the key to start it, it does nothing, like it is totally dead. The battery is up and fully charged. I have run a jumper wire from the battery to the ignition switch and can start it that way but then the ammeter doesn't show a charge. I have replaced the ignition switch with the correct one and I still have the same problem. Can anyone out there tell me what to check next? Thanks for any suggestions!
