Well. I got everything hooked up to the new solenoid and starter, everything seemed to be correct when I connected the battery. No sparks or engine trying to start before I hit the button, but unfortunately when I did hit the button all I got was a click. The battery is less than a month old, put it on a charger and it doesn't seem to be taking a charge. I"ll drag it back to Wally mart to day and exchange it for a new one. Does it sound like I'm missing anything?
Thanks

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeSure does sound like you are missing the ammeter or do not have ammeter wired correctly

Before the starter locked up and I replaced with new starter and solenoid, all of the wiring was correct from ammeter, ignition, push button, and starter. I swapped everything out and wasn"t sure about the wire from key ignition switch going to right side of solenoid cause all the diagrams didn"t show it that way. Dell confirmed that it was ok to run that way. So it looks like everything is back where it was before starter crapped out. I"m hopping the reason I"m only getting a "click" is due to bad battery, but I"m afraid it may be a bad new solenoid. Heading to get battery checked now. I"ll keep you posted. Thanks for your help and patience.

"OK" is sort of 'OK', I guess, but I don't see your ammeter telling you much, as it will not read either charging or discharging (load) current as wired, with alternator & ign both tied directly to battery side of solenoid.......but the tractor should run like that.
"Click" is most often a bad connection at one end of either battery cable, a weak battery, a bad cable, a bad starter with a good solenoid. If with a known good battery, you still have same results, after ensuring connections & cables, give starter housing a good solid 'whack' while holding the start button down. Sometimes this will temporarily gain brush to commutator contact when brushes/brush springs are shot.
