Question about Garden
My Toro riding mower wont start it just clicks when I try starting,was told to check ground
A click is a good sign
I'd touch a car jump lead direct from battery +ve to main terminal on starter motor. Just flash on for 2 seconds - It will spark a bit but it should turn the starter motor - regardless of key / solenoid circuitry.
If YES then trace the heavy wiring from batterry to starter via the solenoid and check for tight / non-corroded conections.
If NO then you have a either a faulty/flat battery or a starter motor problem (likely worn brushes - which are cheap to replace)
I doubt you have a ground lead off - because it wouldn't click if that was off!

If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.

It may be a problem with the camshaft-compression release. Some of the Briggs & Stratton models had a weak spring on the compression release whis is parts of the camshaft. you may also want tocheck that all wires are clean and tight. Also if it's a over head valve model check the valve clearance.

SOURCE: riding mower will not start
Starter drive is stuck. Clean by spraying brake kleen on starter drive and blow drive with air. Might
have to remove starter to clean. Check for missing cogs on starter drive.

Your battery is dead. Replace it.
In the winter keep a smart trickle charger on the battery to prevent it from discharging. Lead/acid batteries lose 1% of their charge per day and are basically junk in 3 months. They have to be kept charged.
