    Make sure your battery connections are good and also check your ground connections as well. Those are the simplest things to check first.

    Please clarify whether it just clicks when you turn the key on or does it just click when you turn key to start or hit start button depending on how it is equipped. May be a safety or a bad connection. If you can bypass or jump the solenoid and starter will engage then it could also be the solenoid. Just a process of elimination to determine the problem.

    If you have a rebuilder in town I would send it to them and it would be a hell of alot cheaper. Thats what i do with my briggs wisconsinand Isuzu diesel starters.

    Does this unit have a remote solenoid or is it attatched to the starter ? Before you condemn the starter try a few few tests . If you can jump across the solenoid and make starter engage then starter is not the problem. You could also use jumper cables to test by hooking directly to starter.If it started before you changed oil it is not likely starter went out.
