    Help on Tillotson electric start

    Yes, the black cable connects the frame to the battery. The starter still does not work. I've thrown it to the back of the bench and gone on to other things. Screw Tillotosn.

    Red goes from bat to solenoid with a branch to the start switch. Black from the solenoid the starter. Attached is the diagram I am using. It looks pretty simple, but I can't figure it out.

    Help on Tillotson electric start

    I bought this used, so I don't know if the starter ever worked, though I have to think it did or it would have been returned. It's not the solenoid. I shorted the contacts and it still doesn't twitch.

    I just pulled the plug and went through the whole routine again. It still won't crank.

    The engine starts manually. Solenoid to starter connection makes sense. I'll pull it apart to check. Thank you both

    Help on Tillotson electric start

    My Tillotson 212 electric start just clicks when I turn the key. Bad battery? I jumper it from my (running) truck. Click. Bad solenoid? I short the solenoid terminals, spark but it doesn't turn over. The oil is full, so it's not likely the shutoff. Can anyone help?
