Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
The other day i went out to mow the yard, but the battery was dead. I replaced the battery today and when i went to start the mower all it did was make a clicking sound.
Before going into the starter, I would check the solenoid. If by chance you have a remote starter button you can connect it to the 2 main terminals of the solenoid or you can use one side of a pair of jumper cables (red or black makes no difference as long as it is the same one. Connect one clamp on one of the main terminals on the solenoid then touch the other end on the other terminal (preferably on the eye terminal of the cable if possible) be prepared for a spark. If your starter cranks doing this, replace the solenoid.
Tapping on the starter with a hammer is a tricky proposition at best, the magnets inside the starter break real easy
