RE: older craftsman mower

Where to start maybe to define "checked" more specifically. Plus posting your 917# from below the seat would be helpful. Do you have 12v at one small solenoid terminal and ground at the other when cranking? There is an actual tractors forum as well. If everything has truly checked out, maybe an OP relay?
