I've noticed,lately that there's been a lot of solenoid/starter problems posted.I decided to do some checking on the solenoids (new & replacement)offered for lawn/garden tractors. Most of them are so light-duty,that it's a wonder they work as long as they do!I've only had 2 solenoid failures, in the last 6 years,and they were my fault(cooked one by shorting it out,by mistake,& cracked the other when my air impact threw a socket). I've never been impressed by the cheap construction of the normal solenoid,so to be safe, I buy an automotive solenoid,and put spade-terminal adapters on the "I"&"S" terminals. I use an SW85,or F496 (p/n) from autozone,and larger battery cables,as well. They work better,and last longer,and supply better power to the starter. Try it.
