First thing was that I bought a new (bad) solenoid

Then I called OLD and he helped me diagnose some small electrical issues. I was able to get the starter to hit and it acted like it was in a bind. I pulled started and confirmed that it was working.

The next thing I tried was turning over the motor manually with the plugs out. I was able to turn it over so far in one direction before it stopped, same with the other direction. I new this was not right so I kept working it by turning the motor over by grabbing the fan.

Finally a bunch of old gunk shot out of #3 plug and it began to spin freely! Bolt starter and carb up and after adjusting on carb it hit and ran.
