    Yes. I thought it had fixed it but its worse than ever now. Every time you go to start it you just have to hold the key untill it desideds to engage and turn over.

    I have starting issues with my 20/52 Fastrak too.
    1) I've checked all the lockouts, they are good
    2) battery cables are good
    3) rebuilt starter, which was good
    4) changed relays. When new relays are installed, mower will start after 5 or 6 clicks. Have replaced these 3 times now.
    No start issue persists. What next?

    107910,
    It allows more voltage to the solenoid.

    What is 107910 ? I already have the assist kit and new solenoid installed.

    Well today I finished mowing and after I cleaned it off it wouldn't start then it wouldn't even trigger the batt light. Tapping the key switch with a hammer made the light come on and a few more taps made is start. Guess ill replace that and see if it corrects my problems. I'm doubtful but we'll see.

    Still no start, i'm about ready to pull this thing outside and burn it. Both the original relay and the starter assist relay click when I go from on to start but no starter engagement. Is the black unit the cables go to beside the motor (I assume its the starter solenoid) supposed to click when the starter is engaged?

    I would work backwards. you may have a dead spot on your starter. when this issue happens I would hot wire the starter to see if it spins. If it doesn't you have been working on the wrong end. In the old days when I turn the key in my van it wouldn't start, I would crawl under, smack the starter with a hammer and we were off and running.

    I tried tapping it like you had to do the old starters. Guess my next step is clean all the grounds and do like you say and work back towards the panel
