Have a jd 112 1975 model pulled out of shed fine put on deck to mow leaves now wont start. No past problems always started well. Will crank over if you jump over the seloind but has no spark to plug. Jumped out safety switches still no go. I'm I missing something simple?

Sounds like you may have blown a fuse..  Look at the primary power wire that either comes off the battery + or solenoid's battery side terminal..  (the smaller wire)  Good Luck Pilgrim!

Ignition switch bad?  Will it run if you sent 12 volts to the coil and jump the solenoid to crank the motor?

Get a test light or meter and follow the + side through the Ignition switch.  You may just have an in-line fuse on the primary power wire.  Test it throughout the path and find the problem.  Also check the Ground side as it will also stop you up..

Might have found the problem. Wasn't getting power from fuse block to amp gauge. Ran a jumper from fuse block to amp gauge and everything works. Will try to see if wire has a bad place in it.
