Just for your edfification, I spent a good half hour trying to figure out what the problem was. Good power from battery to terminal lug on starter, but no power to ignition switch, lights etc. Checked slo blow fuse and it was good. Still nothing. Finally just tried wiggling it ( I know, real technical right?), which made lights flicker. So it appears that the slo blow fuse needs replacing. I was able to start and run the tractor, but certainly will want spares for this.

How did you check it?

When they blow they spew crud all over the "window", however I used a multimeter to check continuity.

PS to follow up, they're PAL or Pacific Auto Link socket, which is not readily available in the USA. Not something you'll find at the local auto parts store. There are a few online retailers who do carry them.

PPS, the fuse is located near the starter motor. In my case it was taped to the wiring loom, so it was hard to see at first. It's in line with the red/white main power wire that goes to the fuse box.
