    Trying to get the 210 running before we get to crazy into it. Got a new battery today, got power at the key switch and at the solenoid but nothing happens when I turn the key. What am I missing, bad key switch maybe?

    Is the PTO engaged? Seat switch? Did the plug with the wires going onto ignition switch come off ?

    PTO is not engaged, the seat switch was by passed. The ignition switch wasn't even on it, so I made sure the wires were on good.

    PTO switch stuck? Gotta be something simple ? Try going across solenoid to see if that's the problem or not?

    Neutral switch? Is there power to the small wire on the solenoid when you turn the key to crank

    Take a jumper wire and touch both big posts on the solenoid and see if it turns over. Do you have power into the solenoid but not out?

    So when I cross the solenoid the starter engages. I've got power from the small red wire going into the circuit breaker below the solenoid, but the wire coming out of it. Solenoid, or circuit breaker?

    Don't you love it when a plan comes together?
