You have 3 safety switches located on the tractor, any one of which can cause the tractor to not crank over.
I assume the deck lever is not engaged, you are sitting in the seat and you push the clutch down when trying to start?
Start by lifting the seat and disconnecting the seat switch, push the clutch in and try to start.
Start there and we'll go from there.

the two wires to the seat switch can be splice together to operate
If the solenoid clicks that means the seat switch is in good shape
The solenoid must lick loudly pushing the starter drive gear outward to the flywheel to mesh with it. When that happens the starter will turn over the engine
I think your starter is at fault. Inside the starter is magnets for fields for the armature. These magnets are epoxied onto the starters frame housing. If they come off which they do it will lock up the starter which makes it unusuaeble. A replacement starter is what you need if this is the case
