and to think you didn't listen to me.......THANK YOU RUDY!!!! Your opinions here are so respected IMHO. I think you can see I did clean that connector and it did start after a little hesitation. If it does it today or tomorrow when I mow I am definitely cutting it off then see what happens the next time. If its fine I may replace it but wasn't considering a chinese version UNTIL you said they have worked for you.
Thank you again sir!
