Hi just lost an extensive reply. I'll start again.
Expert:  K. Kergan replied 1 year ago.
The model number of the engine and/or drive would be a big help.
Still, I should be able to give some answers.
Expert:  K. Kergan replied 1 year ago.
The slave solenoid is usually on the top of the engine and it clucks when the engine won't turn over.
This usually means the slave solenoid is no good.
Expert:  K. Kergan replied 1 year ago.
If you can give me the engine model number I can give you a parts diagram showing you where the part is.
I can't believe I said clucks instead of clicks.
