Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I Replaced My Battery And I Still Cannot Start It.
Its posible that the bendix drive on the starter is sticking. You may be able to free it up with a squirt of WD40.
The bendix drive allows a gear to move forward and engage the flywheel to turn the engine over. If WD40 is not succesful then the starter will have to be removed to examine and determine why the bendix is not engaging. Sometimes rust is the problem.

Mabye it was a bad battery of it could have to do with the sparkplug being flooded.
