Remove spark plugs and see if it will turn over. Can you turn flywheel by hand 360?

engine turns ok. Shorted the solenoid with screwdriver it turns over will start and run ok if you hold the start button at same time. The propane must be on the relay and is working the relay. Can't figure out if it is the relay or solenoid

For starter to only turn flywheel small amount, it either is not staying engaged, or the voltage at start is too low to turn engine. Do you have voltmeter to test the voltage at starter?
