just finished all my wireing so i decided to see if it would at least turn over, i decided to check out the lights and they work as they should. and the selenoid just cliked would that be a bad one. also i usd my test light checked A side on the starter , gen and the light is one does the A side always hot. i rewired the same as on the schematic. before i get a new solenoid is there any thing i could or i could check, i thought it was ok before i started the tear down. as a rule of thumb it works or it doesnt. would anybody agree.

does the solenoid have to be grounded to the tractor as well.

Most solenoids use the metal mounting bracket as the - connection back to the battery, through the engine block. If it only has 3 terminals, one to energize the solenoid and 2 big ones to carry the current to the starter, then it needs to be grounded back to the battery - through the chassis or a separate wire.

ok ill check that out, come to think of it i did paint the solenoid all except the 3 terminals maybe should not have done that.

well i took the solenoid off and cleaned the paint off the brkt. and ran a ground wire hooked up and still just click,click,clicked. so i pulled the one off the other 990 and i get the same thing, at this point iam a little confused, so i took off the other gen/starter then she turned over. i was a happy man. and i thank all of you that helped me . also pulled the other gen apart it had a broken wire at the A pole. thanks gary.
