Can I just cut the black wires coming out of old switch and connect with wire nuts to black wires of new switch? And cap off the ground wire from new switch since no ground on old switch?

You could do that but it would not be up to the electrical code requirements. Take the old one out and remove the wire nuts and put the new one in. There should be a ground wire stuffed in the box somewhere. Unless the house is really old. You connect the ground wire to the bare ones in the box.

Can not hardly turn engine over with plug in much easier with plug out. Tiller had sat for a few years and I put some oil in cylinder and helped some.Bolens 31cc tiller.

Not sure if you can do this with your particular engine, but if you can take the cowling off and use a heavy drill motor and socket, spray wd40 in cylinder and turn the motor over with plug out using a drill, you may loosen the the old oil or rusty cylinder.

A Project.
Remove the spark plug lead just so you can't have it accidently fire.
Remove engine cowlings as necessary to get at recoil starter.
Remove recoil starter (that's the bit that the pull rope is attached to.
Dis-mantle it until you can find what is wrong. Fix or replace.
Put it all back together.
Take it to a small engine repair shop and pay a bunch.

It says the grounds can be installed anywhere??? how??

Ground wires should be connected to the ground bar.
Neutral wires are connected to the neutral bar.

Locations with a single electrical panel / service usually have the neutral bar bonded to ground and ground and neutral wires are connected to the same bar. Some have two bars that are connected together electrically to form a single bar. You'll see ground and neutral wires connected to the same bar.

Secondary panels in these locations (home with a second panel in a garage, in-law apartment, etc.) must have separate bars and at no time shall a ground wire be connected to a neutral bar or a neutral wire be connected to a ground bar.

What is the proper gap for the spark plug?

The gap is usually around .025.

But first to see the spark plug is firing by removing, grounding to the cylinder where you can the gap then pull the starter cord.

If there is spark jumping the gap then your more likely to have a compression problem. These engines needs at 100 psi to fire; otherwise, fuel is just drawn in but is never ignited by the plug.

In this case you would remove the muffler and check the cylinder, piston and ring condition . A bad scored cylinder or piston will cause lack of compression. A struck ring will also cause lack of compression. A struck ring can check for by using a small screwdriver gently probing the ring to see it moves freely. If the ring is struck then the cylinder will need to removed so ring and piston can cleaned. Note: these are easily broken so don't use to much force when trying to free them.

3 lights to a 3-gang (3 swi tches). Replacing switches. Current switches>2 have 2 blk wires & no ground wire. 3rd switch has a ground wire. New switches all have a ground wire. Should I wire all 3...

All 3 switches should be grounded, plus one box should have a ground wire to the box ground screw, all ground wires into the 3 gang should be connected together, run a 4th to the metal box and one to each switch ground.

Do i need to add ground wires for a Lampholder kit?

The ground should be a green insulated wire from one of the screws on the fixture then attached to the bare ground wire with a wire nut.
