Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! You don't mention the ignition fuse! Have you located the single 20 amp fuse and verified it is good? Do you get any indication you have voltage to the key switch? If not, the fuse or fuse holder is not sending voltage to the keyswitch. Fuse looks to be behind the engine, next to the starter solenoid.
