Sounds like to me that your flywheel key is jammed. you will half to take it apart. Inside you will see a little gear on top of a cylinder shape object. and the gear turns the middle part. you will have to turn the middle part as hard as you can to get the gears unjammed.

Have Bolens lawn tractor, 15.5 HP B&G engine 2005

It is a fuel cutoff solinoid, backfire prevention solinoid. If it fails then you will get no gas into carburetor. If you turn the key from off to run and it clicks then it is working, if it does not click then there is a problem.

I have a Bolens riding mower. It worked fine yesterday, but when i went back out to finish yard it wouldn't start. Tried to charge battery but that didn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

I suggest that you check to make sure that your mower's blades have been disengaged. There is a safety switch that will prevent restarting if your mower's blades are engaged.
