The person Im restoring this for wanted everything that has to do with the mower deck removed.So everything has been removed even the lever that turns on the mower deck.I have the safety switch hooked up and its just laying there.Can the safety switches be bypassed to see if thats my problem?

No, the switch is either the wrong one or is wired incorrectly. Do you have a magneto ignition switch? If you have a non JD 70 switch it is possible the terminals are in a different place causing your problem. The points have nothing to do with cranking the engine over. Roger
