    I cannot start my Toro Wheelhorse Model 70041 using the electrc start. I can start only by shorting the solenoid switch connections.
    Fuses are all ok.
    Gearshift makes contact with relay in neutral.
    I checked all connections and all are ok.

    How can I narrow this down to the culprit?

    When you try to crank it does it either-
    A. Click
    B. Nothing
    If "A", the solenoid is bad.
    If "B", try jumping 12V to the SMALL terminal on the solenoid.
    If it cranks, you aren't getting 12V from the switch. Look for disconnected wire or bad switch.
