Question about Garden
Unbolt the starter, and try it, to see if it turns over. make sure it is grounded or it won't turn. next turn the engine over, to make sure it isn't locked up, if everything looks ok then put the starter back on, check the voltage at the battery, a fully charged battery will read up to 13 volts, check your wires from the battery to the solenoid. make sure the eyes on the ends of the cables are making good contact. If the wires get hot you need to make new ones, this normally means it isn't making a good connection, and low voltage going into you're starter will make a spark in the windings and ruin the starter. It would be a good idea to use a little heavier wire than the facctory did . If you get power to the solenoid and when you hold the key in start psition you dont have any power on the other side of it,and you can hear it clicking, you will need a new solenoid, which would mean this was the cause of the problem. If everything is ok put your meter on the battery and try to start it. if it drops below 10 volts you might not have a high enough cranking amps battery.
