Go to Napa and buy a new 6 volt battery. These old engines are low compression so don't need a ton of cranking amps but they do need to be strong and in good condition. Next bet yourself a "speed blaster" I bought one about 30 years ago when they were cheap now they are more popular and price has quadrupled. Basically a little sandblaster. Clean all the ground points, cable ends, connection. Don't forget to clean the nuts and washers to. Clean the start face and block surface to it grounds good there also. You will be amazed at how much happier your electricity will be when it has a clean path to follow.
