The switch has gone bad. Very common on these. The contacts in the switch wear out and then get welded together. The motor draws a lot of power when first started and this is ******* the switch.

The rectifier is in the top end of the motor. Take the cover off and then the top end plate of the motor. With the bolts removed, you will have to tap and rock the plate to evenly remove it. Carefully look at the marks on the old and new part to be shur you do not make a mistake in the wiring. A drawing and photo might be nice too.

Use your volt meter to test the battery voltage. It should be at least 12.4v . I this is good, follow the voltage through the ignition switch and the relay if it has one, on to the starter. If you have power on to the starter, but still no crank, the starter is bad.
Hope this helps, Robert
