Please help! Ignition turn yields loud clicking from solenoid. Replaced, same problem. Continuity good on pos, neg cables to solenoid. A few tries drains battery but on charger can repeat the issue. Shaved paint from solenoid ground issue, no progress. Fuse continuity checks. Starter replaced. Brake switch and blade switch replaced, same issue. Engine is khoeler 19hp, anything else i can try before exploring exhaust valve area?

Have you Loaded tested the battery? Auto Zone does it for free if you don't have a load tester.

If the battery checks out, I'd start looking for a voltage drop in that start circuit. Here's a link that shows how to test for voltage drop on both the + and - side of a circuit at the battery with a DVOM

Thanks for that Bob. I may be trying that out on my own tractor tomorrow!
Yep.... Comes in really handy. Wife gave me a weird look the other day when she asked me what I was doing and I told her I was testing the mower for VD. She ask me how a mower could get VD and I told her it was probably sneaking out of the shed at night:)
