John Deere 318 starter problem

Roger I have a 1986 John Deere 318. Two years ago I started having problems with it starting. It would just "click". I put a new silinoid and then a new starter on. It still clicks, but now I blow the fuse after trying to start it several times. I used to be able to finally get it to engage, now it will not!! Anybody have any suggestions now. Thanks!!
bob I have a 317 that would not engage starter once in awhile. Sometimes the starter shaft gets gunked up where it engages the flywheel. It is hard to locate but wd40 seems to work then give put some oil on the shaft that comes out.
Bob Sometimes you have to turn the key switch past the run detent in order for the engine to crank
al
sounds like contacts in starter switch (ignition switch)

Bypass your ignition switch i.e. (hot wire) if it starts okay then it is your switch. (key) or loose wires in the connections.
