Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • verify good engine and frame ground as well as harness' black/white wires;
  • • carefully test for high pulsating voltage from the magneto's black/red wire to the ignition coil;
  • • ensure kill wire black/yellow is not tied to the ground when attempting to start.

This is an independent site and members of this online community provide information, repair tips, technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
