Jim, I think he is talking about the starter solenoid. It might have one of those where the power has to go through the solenoid out a terminal at the bottom to the switch for "power in".

Right, regarding the electrical issues. I was addressing the comments about having no fuel and needing to rebuild the carb. If it has a fuel shut-off solenoid and electrical issues, there might not be anything wrong with the carb, just no fuel flow due to the shut-off not having power.

So with what you are saying then it would be just the solenoid?

Also with that being said I know the electric lift is operated through the solenoid and I'm pretty sure that is what burned it out now once this is fixed should I possibly run the lift straight to the battery with a fuse so that way I'm not burning up my solenoid again in the future then it would just blow the fuse instead

I ended up finding a loose ground a burnt fuse and a bad solenoid and it seems that all three kept it from doing eny thing and you couldn't see that the fuse was bad but it was when I tested it
