Got the new start switch installed...,
Required filing out the switch panel opening, as its larger.
Tried to start it... nothing still.
Found one of the connectors was hanging by 1 thread.
Still no crank but still hearing a click when I press the start switch... for a few times, then it goes silent again.
Poked around with the Powerprobe.
Found that, despite the + lug being connected as required, there was no power at the starter relay.
Traced it back, and there was not power making it to the back side of the wire. Black wire is live, the original gold wire behind it is not getting voltage.... they are on the same bolt.
Disassembled it and there was surface rust on the bolt...
Whatís weird to me is the bolt going thru the piece of the genset chassis that is ground.
When I disassembled it there is just a plastic/nylon top hat section washer insulating the live bolt from the grounded chassis lug. It wasnít in great shape so I need to figure out a better solution.
Anyone have ideas?
So, I bypassed the mounting temporary..., and guess what...
It cranks over now from the switch!
No spark tho... so I checked the plug, HT lead and coil and all read ok electrically.
I think maybe the ignition system is not getting power.
