I started at the ignition switch, tracing the problem with the non-starting CC 108. When I got to the first safety switch (PTO safety switch) I discovered my problem. I bypassed both safety switches by running a wire from the ignition switch direct to the solenoid. Problem solved!
I don"t have the use of the safety switches but at least I didn"t have to have an inline starter switch.
I would like to thank all the people that responded to my original post with the great suggestions. Again, thank you.
