I have a vanguard 16hp engine elect start. I have started it with starting fluid and it fires off. But i am getting no gas. I have a line from the gas tank to a fuel pump? and this line goes to the carb. I have a small soleniod on the carb with a wire that goes to the switch. Can someone tell me how this thing works. thanks Dan

It's a fuel cut off solenoid.
It needs 12V to it for the engine to run.
It has a "needle" that protrudes into the carb Main Jet to prevent after fire when shutting the engine off. No 12V and the needle won't retract out of the way.
