i have a murray widebody that is about 10 years old and in good condition, but for the ignition system. i have replaced the battery, selonoid, and ignition switch but still have problems turning over the engine. normally, when the key is turned, nothing happens, no click, buzz, or purr. after many tries, suddenly it turns over and starts normally. all contacts are tight.
check your owners manual and find out where the starter interlock switches are,there are probably a couple[seat-clutch-pto-ect.] check these conections and swithes and make sure the linkages engage them properly
