It’s Alive!!
Well kinda - through the help of some friends here in GA; we have power to the switch (after reading how to clean the contacts and such) now just have to diagnose the no spark condition and likely replace most of the ignition system. Regardless, it’s the small victories that count right?!

Check your oil level first- you should be able to build enough pressure with cranking for the oil light to go out.

Good luck with it.

Check and see if it has fuel I suppose..
