There should be the remainder or stub left for the black wire.

I can give that a shot but when I did get it started it died much faster (5 seconds) and then was flooded.
Yes, fill the float bowl, then shut the fuel off. if the machine runs for a minute or so before it dies, safe bet to say its a carb issue, not electrical.

You would think but I've looked everywhere using a bright trouble and spot light. The wire is only a few inches long so it is fairly easy to search in that radius and yet I find nothing.

Thanks @nwcove that would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if the wire is the issue but at least I can eliminate that.

The carb looks really clean inside. The jet is clean and all the holes are clear. Everything looks good to me. I spritzed everything with Sea Foam, dried and reassembled. I'll put it back in the machine after dinner (EST here in the Boston areas).

Great, ok so there's the wire and it is clear as mud where it attaches!

Is the left side of your photo - the side with the twist tie, the front of the machine or the back? I'm trying to orient the photo since it looks different than mine. I don't seem to have that black box with LH printed on it.

it does look quite different than yours but the black wire on mine goes in behind the recoil shroud.

Well, I give up! I took off the front impeller shroud, nothing there. My black wire is not long enough nor was it positioned to get anywhere close to the recoil shroud. I turned the machine over, on its side and looked everywhere and I just can't find it.

I have everything reassembled and ready to test start. Should I leave the choke off and also not pump the priming bulb with the shutoff valve closed?

What model of machine do you have, it seems very different than mine.

from you pic, the wire is very close to the recoil/fan shroud. it looks like it might go to the coil ? in the pic i posted the fan shroud is on the right, with the carb bowl just out of the frame...to the right. would be good to repair it, but it shouldnt cause a flooding issue, maybe shorting , or kill switch wont work, but not flooding. jmo

mine is a 92403 28E
