What tractor do you have? starter switches are different. Do you have a solenoid on the starter? is that is what is clicking? You may just have a bad battery cable connection. I would check both ends of each! 6 volts or 12?
Remove the drain plug in the bottom of the carb and with the shutoff valve open 2 turns, measure the amount of fuel you get. It should fill a pint jar in 2 to 3 minutes.
If it starts out with a good stream and then down to a trickle, you have found the problem, almost. There are three screens in the filter system. One inside the tank, one in the inside top of the sediment bowl and one that is part of the elbow going into the carburetor! If any get plugged, you will have what you do. Also the standpipe on top of the sediment bowl inside of tank can become plugged. One of mine did a few years back.
If the fuel is good, just as soon as it dies, check for spark at the plugs, not a few minutes later but real quick.
