I have a dyna 16 hp. generator model 303447 type 1042-a2

Customer Question

I have a dyna 16 hp. generator model 303447 type 1042-a2 which is connected to natural gas. I charged the battery. When I try to start it w/ a key the engine just clicks. What is the problem and how can I get it to run?
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: It is connected to natural gas which I just shut off the valve to.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If it is easy enough.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: It doesn't turn off w/ the key anymore so I just shut off the gas to stop it. It is nearly 20 yrs.old now.

Can you turn the engine by hand, to insure engine is no locked? I f you jump the starter solenoids two cable terminals, does engine spin? Which is quick test, of battery, cables, and starter.
