Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have a MTD yard machine riding lawn mower. It has a Briggs 17hp twin II I/C engine. I can't get it to start. I replaced the battery, soleniod, ignition switch, and starter. When I try to crank it, all I can hear is the solenoid clicking. I rechecked the battery to make sure that I didn't run it down with a multimeter, it reads 12.17v. I am lost, any ideas where i go from here?
Its a thing of beauty to see problems solve themselves. It seems to me this trial and error approach is very taxing and could have been avoided if 1, your small engine repair guy/Craftsman/Sears had sold you the right parts from the start, or 2, you had bought the right part... from the start.
