Does the starter spin and not engage? Or does it do nothing? If it is the first one your bendix may be stuck and need oiled. If it is the latter get a test light and turn the key to the crank position,see if there is power at the starter if there isn’t it could be a safty of other wiring gremlins. Or a bad cellenoid

Check both the PTO and neutral safety switches. Wiggle the levers to make sure the tractor is in neutral and that the pto is fully disengaged. (Don't be embarrassed if that's the issue - anyone who says that they have never done that is lying...)

If you temporarily bypass these safety switches for troubleshooting purposes, PLEASE make sure you replace them if they are bad. They are there for your safety.

Thank you, it was the pto lever, did not know that had a safety switch on the pto, I would have really been embarrassed if I pulled a bunch of stuff apart and then figured it out.
