I've got a problem with my 2440. The starter will not consistently engage when turning the key to start. It will click - like a dead battery. Sometimes engage for a partial turn. repeated turns of the key will eventually result in full turn over and start. I bought this tractor in 2015 and it was supposed to have had a new starter - the solenoid does look new.
Here's what I've tried so far:
- cleaned both battery terminals - reinstalled.
- jumpered across transmission lock switch.
- checked alternator output during run - 13.9VDC
Any suggestions on what may be going on would be appreciated.
