    i have just recieved a 1983 toro8-32 from a family member but wont start with th ekey.if you cross the solenoid posts it starts right up.what could the problem be? i was thinking either a safety switch is bad or my solenoid is bad. should my wire to the key be hot at all times? please stressed for days now. ohh if it is the safety switches how can i test or bypass them?

    Post some engine part #'s and serial #'s and someone will be able to get you a wiring diagram. Better yet, read the 4th post from top.
