Thanks for the update Don. Using a test light or volt meter, test for power to the starter solenoid S terminal with the ignition switch in the cranking position. If there is power there and the battery and connections including all grounds check okay, it indicated a faulty starter solenoid/starter. If there is no power there then check all your fuses and relays and for power in and out of the Ignition switch for a possible bad switch. If that tests okay then as you suspected test and check for problems in the safety switch circuit( Seat, Clutch/Brake, PTO, Neutral safety switch, and wiring harness and connections). Try bypassing with a jumper wire for test purposes. Let me know
