If you are sure the battery has a good charge, then it's either going to be your starter, or the spark plug. The clicking noise makes me think it's not the starter. I would say dead battery but you have stated it's a fresh battery. So... next step would be to have a look at that spark plug. It may either be fouled, or otherwise in need of replacement.

My advice, is take the battery to AutoZone and have them verify the battery is indeed good. And if it checks out, get a new plug while you are there.

Have you checked the oil in the crankcase, is it full ?
Has engine been sitting along time ?
Have you double checked all the battery conections, all are tight, good ground connection to motor ?
Please let me know.

From your description it seems that the starter is not engaging to turn over the engine. First ensure all the connections of the thicker cables to the battery, starter and tractor frame are clean and tight. If starter motor is turning but still not engaging it will mean that the pinion on the starter motor is binding on the shaft. You can buy a new starter pinion gear from your local B & S agent.
To replace pinion, remove starter motor from engine, remove old pinion and put on new one and reattach starter to engine. If fuel & spark are right you should be up amd running.

Need instuctions on how to put plow on.


There is a fairly new sears site (as of 4-11-08)that includes all manuals for all sears products:

http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/prod...Display.action

Make sure that Scripts are enabled in your browser.

Enter lawn or garden tractor manuals as:

Type of Product:
lawn mower (or tractor)
Brand:
craftsman
Model no.:#
(example: 917.276081)

make sure if the model has a suffix (like 917.276081 or 917.276082) to use it. This also works for all attachments, and add-ons.
