I have owned a 1968 Allis B-112 and my sons 1970 Simplicity Sovereign 3212v fully restored to original for 20+ years.The 3212v will not turn over! It has a new ignition switch,battery,voltage regulator and rebuilt s/g.Got voltage to regulator but no"CLICK" from solenoid, but the beast started once last night better than ever.Now nothing!!Need insite. SOLENOID?? Nuetral switch?? First issue in 20yrs.Just frustrated!!

check your oil level. Maybe the carb leaked and you have a hydraulic lock in the cylinder.

First of all, jump the two main terminals on starter relay to see if motor gets juice. Then if it does, jump the battery terminal to the signal wire on the relay. If it spins your problem is back in the harness some where, I my first guess is the neutral switch wire is off.

Take jumper cables and bridge across the two large terminals on the solenoid. If it turns over and starts, then it is the solenoid. I have replaced a couple of them in the last year.

Ok,So after bashing my head on the steering wheel trying to figure this out,testing all the expensive parts before the next snow storm. The wires for the safety switch came in contact with the driveshaft coupling slicing the blue wire clean through. Spliced it together and it fired right off. So watch where your harnesses go check them periodically! Lesson learned. Thank all of you guys for your insite and experience. Hope I can return the favor some day.THANX.
