Your comments have no relevance to the problem. The starter system works perfectly.

The problem is in the electrical generation system. The important point is that the shop manual warns that rotating the crankshaft in the 'wrong' direction may somehow damage the generator - the ignition and the lighting and battery charging circuit components.

I'm wondering if, during the installation of starter crankcase, that the generator flywheel was rotated in the clockwise direction, and so damaged the electrical system.
