So I pulled my 1254-01 apart a couple weeks ago to replace a locked up steering column. I put it back together, and now it won't crank. It did before I took it apart.
Anyways, I checked it out, and it does crank when I jump the solenoid. It also has 12 volts going down to the red wire when I turn the ignition to start. I'm planning on picking up a solenoid tomorrow, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything before I do that, it just seems weird that the solenoid would fail in the 2 weeks it was just taken apart.
Also, this is the diagram I downloaded from the tube frame repair manual I found in the downloads section. I only have 2 yellow wires coming from the ignition switch, not 3 like the diagram shows. Also, one of the yellow wires is disconnected and not going to anything. I do have the yellow wire going from the regulator to the switch (the one I drew). Should the other wire be connected to the ammeter or the light switch?
