Hi,
sorry for my english but i'm french.
I have a problem on a MF10.
Further to an inversion of polarite in replacement the battery(drum kit), the solenoide died.
The tractor demarre by putting a thread on both sides of the solenoide.
I want to change the solenoide but is it possible to put a standard solenoide
Thanks for your help

:welcome: to GTTalk. Thanks for joining.

Please pardon my English as I am American. We will work thru this.

I believe you are saying that you hooked up the battery reverse polarity?
Is that when the solenoid died?

You can use an auto- style solenoid as long as it is for negative ground.

I also think you said you got it started by putting a wire on the solenoid. If the tractor started and ran after a polarity reversal, that is good news.

Welcome to the forum! Hopefully the solonoid is the only problem. When you get it running again make sure that the voltage regulator is working properly. There is a chance that it could have been damaged as well.

Pictures the universal language.
Here are some solenoids that you could use.

Or this one but these are wired 2 different ways.
One the two small terminals are + and _.
The other supplies an addition + to the ignition circuit. Used on early Ford products.
