I have a 1988 Bolens ST140 Hydro.
My issue is figuring out where the switches are and either replacing them or troubleshooting them.
I can't get my lawn tractor to turn over what so ever.

Welcome to GTtalk. As for the switches there should be three of them. One on the brake pedal inside the frame, one on the seat and one on the hydro handle under the dash.
As Maynard said also check the solenoid and clean connections and it may also be the a bad key switch.

Also the pto switch will not let the tractor start if it is on or not working right.

:welcometogttalk:

Do you have a multi-meter that you could use to check the switches?
If you don't have one, you better get one, because you will need one for trouble-shooting.
