There are two small 3/8" hex nut terminals on the starter solenoid... one nut has a black wire leading to ground..... the other terminal, probably a yellow/red wire should have 12v applied to it when the key is turned to the START position... does it?

If not, jiggle the throttle handle around a bit as the saftey neutral switch does get out of adjustment occasionally.

Do you have the regular white OMC control box or a console top mount arrangement?

It can be adjusted simply by loosening the retaining screws so that you can shove it slightly closer to the cam.
