    Disconnect the solenoid and take an ohmmeter reading across the coil- should indicate conductivity (1-1000 ohms depending on coil size). You can also use a power supply (batter charger will work in a pinch, use low current setting) across the coil and see if the actuator moves when you apply a voltage.

    Also don't forget to check the fuses.
    Hope this helps.

    When you turn the key on, do you hear a pulsing noise?

    I replaced the fuel shutoff solenoid and the tractor starts every time. I did hear a noise which I thought was the fuel pump. Thanks for the reply. Cork
