Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Craftsman 17 hp ohv, mod # 311707, type 0132-ez,I/C platinum, relay clicks one time with each attempt to start, did not test starter to see if getting power, also did not direct connect battery to starter terminal as did not see reconizable negative terminal. does starter have negative ground thru frame? tnank you for your advice, grump.
The frame of the tractor is the same thing that starter grounds to,so yes ,put the ground any where on the frame or engine block to test the starter.An easier way to test everything is to cross over the large posts on the solenoid with a screwdriver and if it turns then the starter is not the problem.Then you will need to put power from the post on the solenoid that has the battery positive connected to it ,to the post on the solenoid that should come live with the key,if it starts then then you likely need an ignition switch if not you need the solenoid.
