I'd check voltage at the battery side of the solenoid, if that is good I'd jump the solenoid to see if it is the problem. I'd also check the battery terminal connections and the ground for it.

You check the voltage at the solenoid with a volt meter and to jump the solenoid use a piece of steel, like a screw driver, to "jump" or connect the battery wire and the starter wire on the solenoid. That is what the solenoid does, you are just doing it manually. You can also use wire, I'd suggest using at least the same gauge as the battery wire.

I un taped the starter and battery wires they were wired pretty loose and sloppy and looks like they tried to sotter together so I'm going to re wire it all today and go from there and I bought a brand new battery so I will try that after

I would take the start switch apart and clean it too. Just scratch the 2 surfaces with emory clothe, or even a knife blade.
I have seen quite a few machines over the years not start simply because the start switch contacts were not clean.
I have even seen several hit and miss starts, and the contacts looked clean, but after scuffing or scratching them, the random or no start problem was gone.
I had a 660 do just that a few months ago.
I'm not saying it's your problem, but it's a simple thing to eliminate.
