Manage My Life

craftsman lt3000, model # 917.276810.
my tractor won't start?

i have replaced the battery, starter, alteernator and solenoid with Sears parts.. the engine won't start.
i can crank the engine by touching the two red terminals on the solenoid. Still no start when i turn the key. It wont crank the engine.
new fuel filter and fresh fuel have been added.

the starter and alternator were bad. the only thing my manual says is that the starter switch may be bad. i removed the switch and cleaned it. lubricated switch with dialectric silicone. still no go.

any ideas???

many thanks, David
