Setup to start a vertical v-twin engine not on a tractor

Was wondering if there is a pic of a setup anywhere that I could copy.

Fuel source. Don't have a small fuel tank yet,trying to find one.

12 Volt battery-got a spare. Want to set it up where I can switch on and off to a solenoid or directly to the starter.

Fuel bowl solenoid-need to get 12 volts to that.

Anyone that has better suggestions?

You'll need to be able to shut it off. Do you want it to charge the battery while running? Just use a keyswitch and a solenoid, easy to do. Ground the kill wire to shut it down. Run the alternator wire to the battery, fuel solenoid to ignition on the switch, solenoid to start on the switch. (depending on the switch you use).
