It sounds as is the voltage regulator is not functioning properly. I'd take her in and have it checked.

Tractor won't turn over. Replaced Battery, starter and hotwire to starter getting smoking hot while trying to jump the tractor or start the tractor.

Is the engine free to rotate? Can you move it by hand? If not, the starter can't.
If so, try removing the plug and starting it.

I have a Toro LX 420. Bought in 2006. Put a new battery in and I get a click sound under the seat where the battery and solenoid are when I turn the key. Is it the solenoid or the starter?

Most likely it is the solenoid especially if the battery is new but the only sure way to tell is to test the battery with a volt meter for 12 volts or more or use a HEAVY jumper wire and cross the two large posts on the solenoid. If it cranks when you cross them, replace the solenoid. don't hold the wire on too long, it will get hot and melt the insulation
