After rebuilding my B, it finally starts and runs - now I have a bunch of little things to get fixed.
I bought a wiring harness but am not sure how the mag ground attaches. My mag has a manual ground and I don't see a place to hook up a ground wire. And I can't seem to get the starter rod to engage the starter button - it does not toggle over dead center to swing up, and if I hold it up manually, it still will not push the button far enough to engage the starter. Not surprising that something is worn with a 60 year old machine that was abused, but I don't know how to resolve this simple mechanical problem.

Thanks,
Tim

The wire goes under the nut that holds the spring shutoff on the magneto.

I would want to see a picture of how the starter is mounted and how you have the rod hooked up. Newer B's were different than the older ones.

Back when I still had a hand start B with mag I did not worry about a wire from the mag to shut it down. I found years ago that shutting it down by shutting off the gas made it start easier. As for the starter are you sure it has the correct type switch on it there is 2 types and one will work right and the other will not because it is opposite of what you need. Or the cam part is worn so badly it cannot push the button far enough and if so one can do some welding to add to it then grind it down so it looks almost like it should
