Hey Everyone, I'm kind of lost here and hoping someone can help.
My wife decided to be a doll and try to cut the lawn the other day. The battery's been dead all summer so I've just been boosting it to start it. She however reversed the polarity when connecting the booster pack. She says it made a funny noise 3-4 times when she went to start it, then when she realized what she'd done and reversed the cable back there was no reaction at all from the tractor.
I got back into town last night and decided to tackle this today. I figured it might be a fuse or something that blew so I wanted to see if I could get it to fire up by connecting power directly at the starter solenoid. When I do that it wants to start, but the engine won't turn over. So I checked the plug for spark while trying the starter and no spark.
Is it possible that it simply blew the plug while reversed?
