Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! When did it last run? Do you have a voltmeter to test the battery? Do you get any indication of voltage when you turn on the key? Do you hear any clicking? Or lights? Seat switch and brake switch and pto switch all have to be in neutral for starter to work.?? If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid, and jump across it, does the starter engage?
