When you replaced the starter, were there any spacers or shims that allowed for the alignment of the starter into the block? While that COULD be the problem, I doubt it but I thought I'd mention it. It sounds more like a problem with the replacment starter. When a starter is engaged, a gear that is normally pulled back into the starter is pushed out so that it can be in contact with the flywheel gear. If the retractable gear will not move out during startup cycle the starter motor will just wind up and nothing really happens. I suggest that you pull the starter and see if the bendix is engaging the gear. If it isn't, get another starter.

What if your 18.5 hp dlt 3000 lawn tractor will not charge new battery?

Battery cables loose or corroded which is not likely with a new battery but check the ground connection and the connection at the starter. Charge the battery with a battery charger and then start the mower. Disconnect the positive battery terminal and if the engine dies the problem is with the charging system. Check all the wiring coming from the alternator located under the flywheel. If nothing is wrong then you will have to remove the flywheel and find out what is defective. Can be a diode has failed or the alternator is defective.
