Sounds like a bad connection at the solenoid or it is bad.

Put your battery directly to the starter/generator. Positive to the large terminal and then touch the negative to the mounting ear or other frame part. If it arcs and don't spin you starter/generator is bad. Don't ground out the F terminal as that is the charging part of the generator and not meant to be grounded. Briefly touching it to ground, if it sparks the charging part is working if the unit is spinning.
