Did it start, or was it just the starter turning the unit? You say it acts like no power to starter generator? Have you check ed voltage to the starter from the solenoid? Does it get full battery voltage?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
It ran on its own for a couple minutes when I let off pedal it ran about ten seconds before it stopped. Tried again starter generator struggled to turn all connections are tight

Is this the two cycle engine? Have you ran a compression test?Starter may be bad, and not spinning like it should, but would have no affect as to it running after start.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Is it possible that the brushes are bad?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 4 months ago.

brushes would affect the starter / generator, but it still would not affect the engine running. Seems like two different problems.
