i noticed before this issue that it was taking longer to start and i believed that was related to the carb issue i've discussed on another thread. i had flooded the thing as i had cranked on the ignition a little long. i used a small jump starter to get it going and that worked fine. i went back to start it last night and it didn't respond to anything.. jump starter.. car.. you name it. two things could have also played a role.. the seriously cold weather since the last batch of snow or having not put the key back to fully off and drained the battery. i also attempted to use a charger on the battery and that didn't do anything either.. i'm not sure if the charger is fully operational as it was up to camp in the closet for years.

any directions asides from smack my knuckles with a ruler?

i'm hoping theres a simple, dumb and cheap fix.

gunnarfan,
I'm not here to laugh anyone out of the forum. We're here to help owners with the problems they run into. Sometimes, the problems are large and sometimes they are small. Everyone has overlooked the obvious at one time. If my short post helped you pinpoint the problem quickly, then I call that mission accomplished.

If the fuse was indeed the problem then was it blown or were the terminals so corroded that no voltage was being transfered through the fuse? If the fuse was blown then you will need to figure out what caused it to blow. Check the wiring going to the headlights. The harness is routed along the RH side of the tractor and it usually gets hung up on the edge of the hood and over time, the vibration of the tractor causes the edge of the hood to cut into the harness.
