Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Engine won't turnover? Starter does not engage? Purple wire completes the ground circuit for start. Is the neutral switch on transmission closed?

Got it started again but it now shuts off if I try to put it in gear
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I assume this is still the culprit
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 years ago
Neutral switch will only affect start. Check the seat switch. Did you look at the wiring diagram?
