This tractor has a 6 Volt System. I should have included that. Also the tractor has been used weekly and was parked for about six weeks. Went out to start it and all I got was the clicking of the solenoid.

Will give the bypass a try.

Gave the bypass a try....all I got was some spark off the starter while making the connection. It did not turn the motor.

Pull the starter off then use jumper cables and try to spin it over by hooking up a good ground to the frame of the starter then touch the other cable end to the stud for the solenoid and see if it spins over that way. If it does fair chance you have bad connections where your battery cables hook up or a poor ground. If it does not spin over take it to an auto parts store and let them check it most do it for free.

On a 6V system it is imperative that all wiring connections including grounds be shiny bright and tight. You may just have a dirty/loose connection or a weak battery.
