So I checked the wiring behind the key starter. The screw in the back runs and is connected to the coil. The remaining 2 screws on the side of key starter have various wires going out. So I made up 2 wires and placed them on the screws. leaving all other wires attached. I ran the 2 wires and joined them to the screws on the push button starter. The wires from the push button starter lead to, 1 wire goes to the coil, and other wire connects to starter solenoid. Still am not getting power to the push button starter, am missing something somewhere. I do have the 40 Buick manual with the wiring diagram.

First, use a jumper from the battery positive post (or cable) to the solenoid to see if the starter activates. If it does there is a mess up in the wiring. On my 37 I added a push button when the vacuum switch on the carb went bad but I feed the push button straight from the positive batter cable post on the starter. I find this very handy to be able to use the starter with the switch off for such things as valve setting and timing.
