Is this a lawn mover?
I tired to look at your starter motor, it appeared to show only one terminal. Should not be hot with key in the run position. The starter driver gear isn't hung-up?
So there is a separate solenoid/relay? Did you wire it back the same way? It would have to receive signal from ignition switch crank position. I don't have a wiring diagram for this.

I have a 98 dodge ram 2500 5.9 4x4 automatic with o/d will not shift out of low untill a mile or two down road then does fine, had a service done and foung half of a clutch band in pan with metla shaving...

Aluminum metal shavings are very normal for this transmission if the pan has never been off.What do you mean by "clutch band".This unit has 4 sets of clutches 2 bands and 2 rollers clutches.I would suspect a bad govenor pressure sensor and or solenoid by the symptoms you describe.With a scan tool you can look at govenor pressure(actual)and desired govenor pressure.Govenor pressure should be at 0 sitting still and should increase with road speed( example 22 mph=22psi). Let me know if I can help.

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee will start but will not shift out of first gear. Any solutions?

Is the check engine light on? Does the speedo work? Probaly is either a bad output speed sensor on the trans tail hosing or a bad govenor pressure solenoid and /or pressure sensor on the valve body. Need to have it scanned. Output rpms should be zero at a stop and increase with road speed . Govenor pressure should be within 3 psi of desired govenor pressure . Desired govenor pressure should match road road speed.I would recomend replace the sensor and solenoid as a pair.Please vote and good luck!

My 97 4l auto is not shiftin thru gears quick enough in the mid range, any advice?

Common problem is govenor pressure sensor and the govenor solenoid. With a scan tool you can see gov pressure and desired gov pressure. Govenor pressure should almost match vehicle speeed ( 15 mph = 15 psi ) . If govenor pressure is eratic or high or low in rlationship to desired gov pressure replace the sensor and the solenoid. Will need to pull the pand to do this.make sure when you check the fluid you check it in NEUTRAL with the engine running and not park.

There is a tsb on this and the fix is to change the engine contrl
