Merging rasters with one value and overlay.

Im having some 10-15 rasters consisting of different soils which I want to be only one raster file. Im having some problems finding out how to proceed as the mosaic operators doesn´t seem to work. The values are just 1 where there this soil type occur, eg. gleysol - 1. The rest is no data. I was thinking about combining but I guess that since there are no data there output will be just no data even if there are data.

The soil rasters will be used as an input to a weighted overlay with other data, such as precipitation, so what I basically want is a raster from 1-10 ranking the most suitable layer for some crop production.
