Still won't start

Illustration for article titled Still wont start

Day X, and this guy still won’t start. This is what I’ve done so far.

I unseized the engine, bought a new battery because the previous was dead, put fresh gas in it (discovered it was empty, didn’t realized it), and I just bought and installed a 4-way solenoid. I believe its electrical, as I hear nothing when I try to start it.


There are three safety switches; one in the seat, one for the deck blades, and one for the clutch. Every single one is in place except for the clutch one. The previous owner put electrical tape over it to keep it depress.

Any thoughts? I’m thinking maybe the ignition is bad? Because I’d imagine I’d get some response from the solenoid.
