Scag click noise

Hey guys,

I have a 48" scag freedom z rider with a 26hp briggs engine. We have one single click noise when turning the ignition key...anyone have any suggestions...here are some more details...

replaced solenoid
replaced battery
replaced voltage regulator
replaced stator
checked all safety switches
mower used to start by jumping it but now will not start at all

any help would be great, we have been dealing with this for months and now cant jump start it anymore so we might have to rent a mower for the weekend, any help would be appreciated, thanks!
