Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Have you checked the single fuse for the ignition system? Located near the starter solenoid , will be on the smaller wire coming off the same terminal of the solenoid as the positive battery cable, goes to fuse and to keyswitch. You did not damage the switches. If fuse is ok, do you have a voltmeter to check for voltage at keyswitch?
