Ok I figured out the pump but now it has no spark. And it has the regular facory key switch but the last owner put an ignition switch in it too it's connected to the positive side of the ignition coil and the other lead for the switch isn't connected to anything. What should it be connected to?

Sooo... It has TWO ignition switches? Is there a point to this? Perhaps just remove the redundancy. If you've got no spark, this freakadelic wiring in't doing you any favours at all.

Yup, the wire coming outta the coil is probably the kill switch wire. Remove the key switch and put in a toggle. Add a momentary pushbutton starter switch ( the cheap horn buttons from autozone work fine ) There is a wiring guide on here. This thread might help

As far as I know the second switch that is connected to the positive side of the coil and the other to the negative it should kill the engine shouldn't it? I have no idea on how to rewire an old solid state ignition with the coil before. I could post pictures if you'd like

Locate the kill wire coming off the coil (magneto). Disconnect it from what ever it is connected to. Crank engine. Report results.

It's not a magneto it's an ignition coil and it just cranks that's it

You're going to have to be more specific. By definition, ALL our engine's magnetos ARE ignition coils. Are you trying to tell me it's an external, 12v POWERED coil? If it IS, then bypass everything and hotwire the coil to verify operation.

Yes it is an external single 12v ignition coil and how would I do that? Just hook it up to 12 volts?

Generally. Why don't you post a couple pics showing the coil details, etc.
