murray rider wont start
i have an older murray 18 horse riding lawn mower and recently change the solenoid i believe that i hooked it back up properly but it wont start not even a click, i tried to jump start it with a vehicle but no go. i also tried to cross the solenoid ends and it sparked but didnt turn?

The first things to check, obviously, are cable connections and condition, ignition switch, etc. After that, I would check the interlocks/safety switches; you will probably find ones related to the seat, the transmission, and the blade engagement.

1) how are you certain the solenoid was faulty
2) how does it show the connection in your owners manual?
2a) you *do* have an owners manual... don't you?
