Question about Garden
I assume you have a Kohler engine and a standard original Wheel Horse wiring.It sounds as though either your solenoid is defective, or the solenoid has a bad earth. If you have current arriving at the positive side of the solenoid from the key when in cranking position and you're sure the solenoid is grounding properly then it's the solenoid itself. As a check you could flash the solenoid and your motor should crank: MAKE SURE THE MOWER IS IN NEUTRAL AND BLADES DISENGAGED. This will prove that the starter motor is good. It's then a matter of replacing the solenoid...a straightforward bolt job, please disconnect the battery as a grounding flash when refitting the solenoid could cause generator failure.
