older ransome t22dv diesel 72" front deck mower
i've got an older (mid-late 80's) 25 hp diesel front deck mower. haven't used it in a few years. getting no fuel... noticed i didn't hear the electric fuel pump at all.
also, the ignition switch was "touchy"... had to wiggle the wires at the plug to get the starter to turn. when i attempted to remove and clean the switch one of the leads broke off (real corroded).
my question... could the switch being corroded and in need of replacement be the reason for no fuel and/or the pump not operating? ALSO where do i go to get the correct switch for this older machine?
thanks, looking forward to hearing from you. hope all is well. have a good one.
