Not sure this is my first 520 and I've read a lot to stuff with electrical issues I have gone through and clean them up and it was working fine. and then I noticed that now when I turn the key to the start position the voltmeter pins itself all the way to the left like there's a short somewhere. and I do not hear any clicking other the starter so I'm wondering is the voltmeter pinning itself to the left normal ? I'm guessing I probably need to check the starter connections for corrosion but they're is a plastic cap over the end of it and I can't see them it is in a 20 horse Onan thax

that's interesting. Sure sounds like it. My voltimeter doesn't work in my 520, so I don't know what the regular behavior should be.

I think that is normal.

When you go to START you first get the RUN connection before the START. RUN powers the A (Accessory) terminal on the switch which powers the voltmeter = 12 volts.

When you advance to START position the A terminal is dropped = 0 volts until the key returns to RUN = 12 volts 

Click on the picture and again on the next page to enlarge the switch description.

Well you're absolutely right because that's what it does once it starts it goes back up to 13 volta thax.
