LX 188 starter

The starter on my LX188 mower kept kicking out after a couple of revolutions. I took it off and gave it to a maintenance man at work and he put a new bendix and solinoid in it. I put in on and it does nothing. I took it back and he checked it out, said the starter is OK. It was off for a couple of weeks before I got it back, I don't think I hooked up the wires wrong, but does anyone have a wiring diagram just so I can be sure it's hooked up right? I looked online, but all I found was buy a digital copy. If anyone has a copy or can tell me which wires are hooked where, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Chris

Check that the (-) battery cable is securely attached to the chassis and making good contact, as well as that both cables are making good contact at the battery.

Also, the circuit from the key switch to the starter solenoid is riddled with safety switches which don"t make any better contact with age causing low voltage/current to the starter solenoid.

DEERE addressed this with a kit that can be used on a variety of tractors. See link below.

Or, you may simply have to figure out which safety switch or connection is bad and repair/replace it.
