Husqvarna DRT900H12 tiller, with Honda GCL (GCV??) -LAMHAB

Customer Question

Husqvarna DRT900H(###) ###-####12 tiller , with Honda GCL (GCV??) -LAMHAB engine. H/v op manual page 4, starting procedure includes "push fuel valve to ON position," and "turn engine switch to ON position." Cannot find either of these parts, even with experienced local service person walking me thru on the phone. Should/does this engine have these parts, and can you help me locate them on the engine?
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Yes clean fuel is in tank, but cannot find a shutoff valve. That and the "engine switch" are the problem.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If you are referring to using the tiller, yes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I have told you everything pertaining to the problem. Operation procedure for startup refers to two items that we cannot find. This is the help I need.

Nothing more. Husqvarna customer service switched me to you for a $5.00 fee. All I am getting from you now is offers that cost more. Can you or can you not give me the answer NOW?
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
If you cannot give me an answer now, for $5.00, I wish to cancel immediately. This is bait and switch at its best.

I will use this information to try to find an engine just like yours, to see if your engine have the parts you are inquiring about.

The phone call is only an option. You and I can work without using it.
