I just bought this model used. When turning on ignition, I get nothing but clicking. Battery is charged, terminals are clean, sanded and Nickle based lubricant applied. What am I missing?

Check the grounding cables between the engine and chassis, batt and chassis.

How old is the battery?

Get the battery load tested at AutoZone.

If you have a multimeter, measure the standing voltage of the battery and when a start attempt is made.

Hi did you solved the problem?
Silly but true and not sure if this applies to yours but my won't start if I not press the clutch.
