With everything you have done only 2 things come to mind.
1) Safety switch open or not functioning.
2) Engine seized.

Why does my LA105 john deere lawn tractor only click when i turn key?

The click you hear is the starter solenoid. If the starter doesn't engage, it is suspect.

I need a sele oid wiring guide for a john deere z225.

25406829-sdtuz4uzlvmm4ye1kcvubb3h-5-2.jpg Basically the large wire from the battery goes to one of the larger threaded copper terminals and the large wire to the starter goes to the other [no particular order] The two small wires from the ignition and return via other interlock switches go to the two spade terminals [again, no particular order].

John Deere Z225 trouble starting - turning the key to start, you hear the starter engage. The engine trys to turn over but struggles. Sounds like the battery is low. Bought a new battery, charged it...

The symptoms described may indicate a bad starter. First check all connections from the battery to ground and from the battery to starter You may want to have the starter tested at Advance Auto or Auto Zone. It will need to be removed from the mower, and I am not sure if Auto Zone, Advance Auto can test small mower starters. They test the starter under load, so if you remove the starter and hook it up to a battery, it will run probably, but it will not indicate whether the starter is good or bad. It needs to be tested under load. Good luck.....

John Deere 855 Compact tractor has no power to solenoid

Power from the battery direct to a big terminal on the solonoid. The other big terminal leaves the solonoid for the starter. Then there are either one (1) or two (2) smaller terminals on the solonoid. If there is one then the body of the solonoid is the ground. With two of course the extra is the ground. Make sure the solonoid has a good ground.
Remove the smaller terminal from the solonoid ( usually yellow) and connect the positive end of a multimeter or a DC volts tester to it. ground the other end of the tester and turn the ignition key to start. If you get 12 volts to the wire end then the solonoid is bad and should be replaced. If no voltage is registered then the ignition switch is bad or an inline safety switch such as: nuetral, clutch/brake, PTO, seat ( Operator Presence Switch). Or you have a bad wire, bad ground, bad connection somewhere in the starting system.

I can not get my John Deere 2020 to start. I have replace my battery, rebuilt the starter, and replaced the key switch. What else can I check?

the john deere 2020 gas tractor has a automatic reset breaker. If the tractor has a short it will shut off power to the ignition switch and reset in 60 sec. If the breaker is bad you will have power at the switch until you turn it to start or ecc.then no power at the ignition switch. I can not find the breaker. let me know if you do.
