I know this is off topic from the everyday GT but I have a problem with a zero turn I just bought. The starter turns over fine but no matter how much amps I put the starter it turns over stops, turns over stops. I have checked all of my grounds and made sure all of my terminals on the selenoid was clean. I can take the spark plug out and it spins great.
I have been doing small engine work for years and I am drawing a blank. Every time I had a starter that was bad it wouldn't work at all. I guess it could be the brushes in the starter could be a little rusty because I think it set outside for a while. I bought it for 100 bucks.
Oh yeah, It's a 15 hp Vanguard single cylinder OHV. It's a 2000 model. I'll get Model Type Serial. In a few minutes.
