4040 Circuitbreaker-----Go Figure------

Recommended Posts


Where does a guy find it on the tractor? Found on in the repair manual in the wiring digram.

Thinking I may have flipped it putting the battery cover on because I grounded it when I touched the pos terminal putting a new battery in, which looking closer I discovered to be taller. Now the fuel pump will run but NO action turning the switch to start.

Thanks for any help.

Was gonna pull dash off the 4040, on the way to shop for tools decided to put the battery back in first, turned the key and it fired up. Got Me, all it did was sat outside for 3 days, which was a first for it since I got it.

Thanks for the ideas where to look guys.

The circuit breaker should be in the wire bundle laying in the frame down by the starter. The circuit breaker is not mounted, it just hangs by the wires.

If the fuel pump runs, the circuit breaker is probably not the problem.

Most likely it is an issue with the safety interlocks, PTO switches, or neutral safety switch. Or it could be the connector on the back of the ignition switch.

Good Luck

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
