Mower wont start

I have a older model mtd riding mower model 132-669G062/95186,my issue is it wouldnt start it ran fine when i put it away last year,so i replaced the battery,solenoid,and ignition so far and still nothing it will click once then thats it.It will run if I take jumper cables and hook up to the positive on the battery and touch the starter it fires right up and runs great just wont turn over with the key.Any help is appreciated thanks.

    Look for a corroded or loose wiring connection.

    Search for a consumed or free wiring association.
    clean the entirety of your capacity link connectors, use oil in every connector.

    When cleaning fails start doing point to point voltage drop tests on the starter main and trigger circuits. Remember these circuit must be activated for these tests to work.
     
    Things like bad crimps on terminals and loose fitting terminals can cause this problem. I have seen both over the years.
     
    I had customer that changed starter, voltage regulator, and stator to no avail. Finally gave up and brought the mower into my shop. Upon doing voltage drop test I found a hinge spring on a F56 terminal at the ignition switch.
     
    I also had one case where the terminal that fed power a mower's ignition switch where only one strand of a multi-strand wire was making contact. The voltage would only drop out upon the starter relay being triggered.
