This is going to be a really... REALLY stupid question with the great job your doing with it,
When you hooked the battery to the solenoid... did you turn the key switch on?

I know... stupid... right?

Yup gtg with that one. I think one some of my problems are. The ign coils are wired wrong, and the rectifier might be shot letting the positive lead go to the ground.

Check your coil wiring. It does not look right to me. There should not be a wire going to ground.

That's an OMC engine. The two coils should be wired in series (one terminal of each jumper connected to each other - to +) The non jumpered + should come from the ignition switch. The non jumpered - should go to the timer points. No wires should go from the coils to ground. I don't know where that yellow wire goes, but it shouldn't be there. Between the two coils should only be a jumper with no other connection.

More information for the OMC motors is available if you download the 826767 Supplement manual from The main 826767 manual is just exploded parts diagrams and parts lists for different models of Trucksters. The supplement contains electrical schematics for many models and one might match your cart, or they might just be for the Trucksters. It also contains the the only information that I've found on the OMC motors. The supplement contains all of the information needed to rebuild either the 18 or 22 hp OMC motors and I'm certain that you will find it very helpful. The only significant difference between these two motors is the cylinders, and they can easily be identified by the spark plug locations. The 18 hp has spark plugs located below center and the 22 hp has spark plugs located above the center of the cylinder. The only other difference may be the spark advance spring in the timer, but I've never been able to find a definitive answer on this. There was also a one cylinder version of these engines that was made and used in later models of Cushman Scooters. Again the same design, except for the one missing cylinder, so places that sell Cushman Scooter parts may have what you need to fix these motors. I use (only sells Cushman Scooter parts and OMC engine parts) and
