2006 Lazer Z XS Air cooled Ex-Mark mower with a 72" deck that makes one click noise when trying to start and has a good battery. Needs jump started and or needs the rotating screen forcefully turned to get the engine to start. What can I do to diagnose

Is there a way to test the starter solenoid while it's still attached to the mower to see if it's working?

Do you still need answer? I have been out of town.

What engine do you have? Model number? Do you have compression gage to test compression?

The compression release may be broken.
