Question about Ford Garden
Tractor is a Ford 1210. Worked fine. Parked for a few days. rained on once. Tried to use the tractor. Starter will not make any sound. Thought battery was low. Charged battery overnight. Same problem.
Look for corrosion at battery and starter. Check voltage at both the battery and the starter. Use fine sand paper to polish it up. If all is good, I would probably try replacing the brushes in the starter ( about $25 for parts) and easier to do than it sounds. This will likely fix it, and If this doesn't, you will probably uncover the problem.

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.

SOURCE: Tractor wont start
For a small gas engine than won't start, think FAST -- Fuel, Air, Spark, Timing. You've replaced the filters and spark plugs and squirted in some starter fluid, eliminating the simple common fuel, air, and spark problems -- but I because of the backfiring I think your problem is in the timing -- like a sticking valve. Probably more than you want to tackle at home, but might not be as expensive as an engine replacement. Take it to a good small engine mechanic -- best bet is a lawn equipment shop that has been around many years. Drive a little farther to get to one if necessary.

Unplug the "control wire"at the starter. Using a DC volt meter or a 12 VDC test light perform the following checks. A helper is usually needed. First off, check the battery voltage with the meter and write down the reading (for referrence in following steps). With the control wire unplugged, connect the volt meter positive probe (or test light probe) to the end of the wire and the other probe (or alligator clip) to a good, clean, unpainted ground (starter mounting bolt is good).
Now have your helper turn the ignition switch to the "cranking position". Your volt meter should respond and the reading should be the same (or within a few tenths of a volt) as the referrence battery voltage you got checking the battery.
If you DO NOT get battery voltage (or a "lit" test light) you have an "open" in the control wire circuit. I don't KNOW how your Tractor is configured (in regard to safety switches or "starter inhibitor switches") but you should be familiar with how YOUR tractor has to be started. By this I mean: Are you required to push down and hold the clutch to get the starter to engage (normally)? Are you required that the transmission be positioned in neutral before the starter will engage? If you can answer YES to either (or both) of those questions.....you will now have to locate and test the "Clutch pedal position switch" and/or the Neutral start switch" to determine if one of them has become defective. Because most electrical things like switches have plug-in connectors, corrosion in a connector body can cause an "open circuit" as well.

the starter puts out the amps to charge the battery, you have do an amperage check to find out what its puting
any good parts store will set you up with an inexpensive tester

Is the engine free to rotate? Can you move it by hand? If not, the starter can't.
If so, try removing the plug and starting it.
