Pull the spark plug and ground it to the engine with the plug wire attached. Pull the rope starter. Do you see a spark?
If not the kill switch or oil sensor is open as long as you know the coil wiring is correct.
*Did you check the oil level? Many of the engines have a low oil shut off. 4 OZ of low oil will do it. The symptoms are:
The engine may fire once or twice and not fire again.( the white puff of smoke) As you pull the rope starter the piston rod is splashing the oil,if it is right at the "low"...
You need to measure the clearance between the flywheel and the engine block. The jaws on a 3-jaw puller may be too thick to go behind the flywheel.

The AC works as in Polar Bears and Penguins.
I went to the UpullitandPay today and brought home a bunch of parts...
I've done a lot so far to bring it up to safe standards:
New Water pump- no impeller
New T-Stat- missing
Flush cooling system
New heater hoses
Install LED lighting
Repair minor electrical problems with interior lighting / door sensors.
Oil change to High Mileage oil and Lucas...
A friend of mine knows I do a lot of off-road riding on my minibikes and I have to tow my trailer to the trail heads using my VW station wagon TDI.
