    Do you get any clicking from the solenoid? check the ground wire at the engine bed plate. Can you turn the engine by hand?

    Another possibility may be the start button. Another member had starting probs, and he disassembled the start button, cleaned the contacts and it worked.

    You can try bypassing the button to check it inside the elec box, but first try the things BD recommended. If those don't work, then try the bypass.

    Good luck.
