I posted earlier some pics of my old Craftsman tractor and brought up the sudden problem it had starting. Today I tapped on the starter and it made a slight gurgle. It won't do that anymore though. The tractor has no safety features or fuses.
I feel a little foolish. My dad stopped by my house to take a look at the tractor to. We were looking through it and my dad tapped the voltage regulator with a wrench. It started right up. Thank you for all the suggestions. I love this site!!
