Question about Craftsman Garden
I have a 20Hp Model 917.28812. I replaced the starter and the Solenoid but the starter will spin but will not engage to start the tractor.

Have you checked the inline fuse?. Also you could unplug the ignition switch and clean the terminals, particuarly the one with red wire in it. That the one that has constant power to it and tends to corrode over time. Hope that helps.

My thought is you need a new "bendix" for lack of a better word. The device I speak of spins out and connects with the flywheel. There is the possibility you have electric problems but based on what you say, I think it is mechanical.
Thanks for posting your question at FixYa.com

I had this same problem with a twin cylinder B & S engine and was able to get just the gear drive replaced without replacing the whole starter. Hope this helps you
