Craftsman Lawn Tractor won't start
I have a Craftsman lawn tractor model # 917.255520. The battery is fully charged, but when I turn the key to start I get nothing (no click / nothing). I jumped it off the truck and it started. Ran it all over yard, cut some grass, but when I shut it down same problem as stated above, nothing when try to restart. My digital battery charger has a built in alternator check swith which tells me the alternator is bad. If that were true wouldn't the battery loose power from running it? I was able to start it again by jumping it off the truck, but when I shut it down, same thing, nothing. The battery is holding it's charge. From reading answers on here I see it could be a variety of causes to include solenoid or ignition switch. If I jump the solenoid and nothing happens, it's the solenoid, correct? If it is the alternator, where can I get step by step instructions on how to replace it? The owners manual for this tractor is very vague, is there a service & repair manual available for this model that can be downloaded? If not where is one available? Any help is greatly appreciated.
