    Thanks to everyone and all of your suggestions! This is a great site with terrific people on it! Hope to be able to return the favor one day.

    Was the fuse defective or burned? If it was burned then look for pinched wire. Fuses don't burn without a reason.

    HeHeh! Glad you found it AND posted back.Was the fuse the one to the fuel shut-off solenoid? And like Solomon said,beware.....if it blows again,you still have a problem. don-ohio

    I know he found the problem, but wanted to mention that a loose connection at the starter solenoid will keep it from starting, but not make it quit running. The only way to make a diesel quit is to interrupt the fuel/air supply, or release the compression. R,

    Yeah,well that's generally speaking.....a loose connection wouldn't have to kill the start,if it was a wire that led to energize the injector solenoid.Anyway,I certainly wasn't trying to pinpoint the problem,just check for loose wires.Anyway,he found the problem and THAT'S what makes us happy.right? don-ohio (:^)

    Huh?

    You said to check for a "loose connection at the starter solenoid".....which can't make the tractor quit like he described. I only commented because people with similar problems in the future might dig this thread up, in a search result, and they don't need to spend time messing checking starter connections when it absolutely has to be fuel system related. The starter, and related wires could fall off the tractor after it was running, and it wouldn't make any difference.

    That's yer story and yer stickin'to it.LOL! A solenoid doesn't have to be right on the starter,and there can be many power sources attached,but it was a generic thing,and if you insist,it's okay by me. don-ohio (:^)

    Sure there can be multiple solenoids on a tractor, and they don't have to be right on the starter....I never said otherwise. If one connects to the starter, and things in addition to the starter, it's no longer simply a "starter solenoid" as you described.

    Ladia the fuse was defective. The internal wire was in perfect shape, no burn spots, nothing wrong in the fuse block. It looked just like the rest of the fuses - brand new. Just goes to show - test everything! Thanks for all of your suggestions - really appreciated it.

    Gman that fuse was in the main fuse block - it appears it was the ignition/starter circut. Thanks for your suggestions.
