Engine slow turning over, won't start

I have an ariens 1540 ezr that has an electrical problem, i think. The mower has been sitting for a few years so the battery was dead. I replaced the battery and noticed corrosion on the + terminal. The mower would only turn over slowly, even when being jump started from my car. I bypassed the corroded wire and connected the cable at the opposite end at its origin but it didn't help. any suggestions?
