I had been using the 550 recently, ran good, started good.

I tried to start it today, only heard the "clicking" sound. Battery is good, I know that. Is it the gadget that sits on the starter with the 2 terminals that's acting up most likely?

Hope it's replaceable.

Try cleaning the battery terminals.

Diesel or gasoline?

Diagnosis can be different.

Terminals cleaned, battery in good shape. Still clicking.

Tractor is a GASSER.

Spend $20.00 and get a multimeter. Check the voltage at the battery and then have someone hold the leads down at the starter. One on the connection whrer thecables attach the other one to a good ground. Have someelse try to start it and see what your voltage goes to.If the tractor still has a generator it should still be POSITIVE ground. Then report back here.

Give the solenoid (yes, the gadget on top of the starter) a sharp tap with a wrench. They 'stick' sometimes and a sharp tap can get it working not too hard though as you can dent it or worse, you can ground it if you bent the copper ground connection.
