Have an issue with my 40.... Since the day I got it, sometimes you need to pull the starter engage switch a few times before it actually works, it then fires right up. Over time it got worse, pull it 5-6 times before it fired. Today I started it, had to pull the lever 5 times and fired up and ran. Stopped it, tried to start again and finally nothing. Any ideas? The starter is not jammed. I took the solenoid off and cleaned up, the solenoid had been replaced once before. Still nothing. Got a good battery.
Any idea what it could be? Starter? Solenoid? Starter switch (for ignition/headlights)? Any help appreciated before I start buying parts
