    I have had this happen and it ended up being a bad ground to frame. I just wiggled the ground wire and it worked again. Never did fix it properly with a new ground or clean the connection.

    Your solenoid could be bad also. If you have removed and cleaned all the battery terminals and checked all connections for tightness, charged the battery (check that it isnt still malfunctioning as they occassionally die on the vine so to speak and wont take a charge) then your are left with starter, solenoid or switch problems.
    Recently my B.I.L.'s Dodge truck had battery problems that would do just what yours is doing, jump it and it would crank and check good, then just click next time. It took 2 trips to the dealer to replace the battery and then only after it finally shorted completely and wouldnt charge or click the solenoid. Sometimes batteries develop internal shorts and check normal when the broken terminal is grounded then it short circuits and wont work at all. Short circuits are hard to find expecially intermittent ones.

    Hi all thanks for the help , I got brave and tore apart the starter ! Found the brushes were stuck and not making contact, so after I cleaned the mud out and got the brushes to move again I put everything back together and then using my charger/starter tested it and it worked so I put it back into the tractor and it fired up on the 1st turn !!!!!!!! Thanks again and hope this helps others
