Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Did you get the engine going? First thing to do when you hook up battery backwards, is to find the ignition fuse and replace it, it will be blown! If the fuse doesn't do it, then check for battery voltage at the key switch and starter solenoid.
