MTD starting problem
Hello all my dad called me yesterday and said his mower wouldnt start. So he went and bought a new solenoid. he has a 42" MTD RIDER with a 17.5hp briggs motor. When we hooked the new solenoid up and connected the black battery cable then went to connect the red battery cable to the battery, the cable began to spark a lot when it touched the terminal
I checked connections everywhere and I did hook a jumper to the starter and it struggled to turn the engine over
what could this be?
