    Start with the push button circuit breaker. Follow the voltage as it goes from battery to electrical box, then to Start button, then to solenoid coil. Then to ground.

    Circuit breaker has continuity thru it, checked that first, i checked for continuity between the two hot terminals on the selenoid, with the start button up zero cont. but when the button was depressed the reading was slugish ie not totally continous. Im thinking that this is my problem, just wasnt sure if i should look elsewhere b4 spending 65 bucks on that part. Also, am I wrong in thinking tht this should crank irregardless of weather the cdi is bad or good and BTW thanks for alll your help K with this and ths msx140 which btw is still not up and going. Still trying to decide to pull or not pull moter to replace the bendix

    Continuity checks are useful, but eventually you need to verify the battery voltage is arriving at the solenoid coil.

    Put your meter probes across the solenoid coil wires. Press start. The meter should show full battery voltage or very close. And the solenoid should click.

    It will crank even without a CDI installed.
