So I got it home and wanted to see if I could get it to start. It needed a battery, so I purchased one and attempted to start it. No luck, I checked all the wiring from battery to starter and altenator. I found a bad ground and bad positive terminal was the culprate. I examined the starter while I was there and saw a couple of teeth were chipped and was only being held in by one bolt. So new wires, starter, starter silinoid and new fuel hose to carb since current one was dry rotted. I poured some gas in carb and she fired up but I could not get it to stay running. I felt good about it starting and running off gas that I put in carb. Pics and more details to follow soon.
