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.
