Lawn mower help

Illustration for article titled Lawn mower help

The truth is, this guy won't start, I'm trying to figure out why. Yesterday I reconnected the battery (new bolts and nuts, lost the originals), and when I pressed the clutch in and turned the key, it didn't turn over. It's a Craftsman LT1000.


Now I think the battery had power, because it kept sparking when my wrench hit the metal when tightening the nut on the positive side. And before winter hit, I added oil to it, and there was gas in the tank too. Not sure if I should redo that stuff though.

When I turn the key, I can't hear anything at all, no sound. I have very little experience with mechanical stuff, but maybe its the starter? Thoughts? Ideas? Anything will be helpful.
