Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
I think taking the radiator cap off had nothing to do with the engine dying and the no start! Is the engine turning, just not starting? Or no starter action? Is battery voltage at least 12.5 volts?
Let's get some basic information before going to a extra charge phone call!
My response shows as customer.
Any smoke from exhaust when cranking?
See link above, # 32 is fuel shutoff solenoid, does it click open as soon as you turn on the key? Do you have 12 volts to it? If it has voltage and does not retract, the solenoid is bad, engine should start if solenoid is removed.
No fuel means the fuel solenoid may not be opening. Did you see the picture?
But is it retracting, remove it and see if engine starts.
I see question is still open, did you find problem?
