Just purchased my 1978 Power King. It took some tinkering to get the mower set up right but I was pleased with the way it ran.
I had to move the battery; (I think it is the wrong one that came with it)
On side hills the seat contacted the positive cable. I turned the battery around and redid the cables and it re-started and mowed like a champ, no problems.It started several time with no problem and I put it away.
Today is the second time I wanted to use it and the tractor barely turned over one revolution. Hooked up the charger for a couple hours. A good loud click of the solenoid but nothing happens. The battery has a charge now so I do not think it is that. After checking connections the the starter would make a strange noise but not turn. Is it shot? How do I test it?
