deck seems to be model 05.42.m505, im new to working on wheelhorses so im not 100% sure
it seems to be a very well built machine. cast iron axle, creeper gear, all of that good garden tractor stuff. woman also has a snowblower attachment. it has sat a number of years because she cannot afford to take it to a "shop". she paid me 40 bucks to get it running and all i did was a carburetor flush. she is going to pay me an additional 200 bucks after everything is fixed. not too bad for 240 bucks. i dont mind working on it either, bringing quality back to life is the name of my game.

In 1987 the M12 engine was used with magneto ignition. On these the seat switch works opposite - closed with no operator in the seat which grounds the ignition to stop it.
The mower deck model number is written like this with a dash 05-42MS05
Sounds like the wiring to the solenoid needs to be cleaned up or there is a weak switch. It is getting enough voltage to click the solenoid but not enough to slam it closed.
