I inherited this tractor from my dad and it never gave me any problems until it just stopped dead one day. The battery refused to take a charge. I ended up replacing both it and the generator, but it didn't help. All that happens is the solenoid clicks. Any thoughts?

Have you given hand-turning a try? Check to make sure all your connections are tight. Can you bypass the solenoid on start up?
