Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
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!
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?
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.
brushes would affect the starter / generator, but it still would not affect the engine running. Seems like two different problems.
