Gravely 12 hp professional model 45444 w/steering brakes. Will not start. Solenoid just clicks and buzzes. Charged battery, cleaned terminals. Still no go. I've tried jumping across large studs on solenoid but still no luck. Are there any other electrical components that could be faulty? Any way to get this started until I can get parts? Thanks

Don't know about the Graveley's but Welcome to GT Talk. I'm sure someone will come along with the answer for you.

Do not think about pulling it to start. The transmission will look like you threw a hand grenade in, with the pin pulled.

I've got a '63 pull start, so I've been there-done that. Starter seems ok. The solenoid just buzzes. Tried pecking it in case it's stuck, but no luck. There is also a relay under the tank. Any ideas if that could be part of the problem?
