These units are equipped with a low/no oil shutdown. When you hold the switch over to start it, it overrides the shutdown interlock until the unit builds oil pressure in the engine. When you release the switch to the run position the interlock is engaged. Ensure there is sufficient oil in the crankcase, check the wiring from the oil pressure switch to the ignition cutout-(it may have been pulled off or damaged). If that checks out, then either jump across the 2 wires at the oil sending unit or disconnect the harness from the sending unit to test to see if the sending unit is bad. Try both unless you know the switch is normally open or normally closed. Replace the sending unit if needed.

You can "bypass" the starter solenoid and hook your 12 volts straight to the starter but it has to be a temporary contact. You can not leave it hooked up. You do need to be careful as sparks can come from this type of connection.
If you are not getting voltage on the "outlet" side of the starter solenoid then your solenoid may be defective. It is just a switch that transfers battery voltage to the starter, once the engine starts it is no longer needed, except to start the engine again.
You may have other issues. Not knowing exactly what model engine you have, there could be some internal issues that is making the engine difficult to turn over. If this is an OHV engine, the valve settings may be off that affect the compression release. The starter motor will not turn the engine over under "full" compression.
We have also seen carburetor issues that create "flooding" conditions and the combustion chamber will fill with fuel and the engine will not complete a revolution when trying to start.
Hope this helps to get you in the right direction.
