Condition...Went to crank the mower and the battery was dead...
Replaced the battery...now the starter spins good...but the gear doesn't engage the flywheel..
Replaced the starter...the same thing happens...starter spins but the gear won't turn the flywheel..
Took the starter back to the dealer ...they bolted it to an engine and it worked fine..
