     I've got a 74 MTD 990. I've put 2 relays on in the past year. Now this one quit working! If you jump the terminals it turns over. I'm using the standard 4 terminal model from TSC. This one went out after trailering it about 30 miles. Any clues?

Assuming you are referring to the starter solenoid. Your are having a string of bad units. I use the the original style with 3 terminals. The mounting bolts ground it. http://www.amazon.co...5/dp/B001ULPJKE

 

I have also used the Ford starter solenoids. http://www.amazon.co...y/dp/B004PKC1YO

like you are using, famous for failing often.

Either will work. I would quit using the TSC unit.
