Thought it was just a dead battery. Replaced and installed a new one. The engine now cranks (where i had no power before) but it still wont turn over. I went ahead and removed old fuel from the tank. Cleaned out the tank and put in new fuel. Still cranks but still not turning over. The tractor is only about a year and a half old. Ive reached my scope of knowledge in trouble shooting it and hope it is still an easy fix.

Not sure I understand cranks but won't turn over. If it is turning over but just won't start and it has sat for a while it could be the ethanol in the carb has gummed up. Thats what happened to mine, had to have the carb cleaned. A buddy who has a boat repair business told me his business has increased around $10,000 a year since they started put ethanol in gas. Thank you Washington.
