    B7100 glow plug indicator not glowing.

    If your "indicator" is a coil of nichrome wire like many older tractors you may NOT see it glow. If it burns out or opens in any way though your glow plugs won't work at all. They're wired in series with it. Glow plugs run at 10.5 volts. That coil of wire drops the extra 1.5 volts.

    According to your picture you have three five amp fuses. They are on different circuits. You need to identify which circuit is affected to begin troubleshooting. You can also look for wires mice have been working on or places where wires could be pinched or bare along their paths.

    governor issue

    You say the tractor is HST. Does it have gear ranges? Mine has three ranges. For climbing a hill try a lower gear range. Be sure the parking brake is not engaged. I've found that easy to overlook on my tractor. It will go anyhow but seems lacking in power.

    L3540 HST wire replacement

    Your switch could be fine. It sounds like the pedal is sticking. Make sure there's nothing underneath jamming then lubricate where it pivots. You should hopefully be good to go at that point.

    The only one of which I'm aware is by John Deere. It's under $10 per bottle. I've not checked whether it's okay for warranty use.

    Kubota B2150 Starter - best options?

    To what Dave said I will add that when the Bendix unit on my old Mitsubishi tractor failed a local starter shop would have repaired it but the price for a complete new starter was only slightly higher. On top of that he was right there in town whereas it could be more sticky returning a failed...
