Thought I would update you guys. Everything checked out fine. I had run it for quite a while and tried pushing in the electric choke but there was no change so I assumed it was bad or the connection was. After trying several times to start it a few days later, it finally did start with the electric choke. What we did was turn on the battery for the remote start. I'm pretty sure I tried with it off and on before with no success but it seems to be working now.
Thank you for your suggestions
