We need more communication from your side to help you diagnose, I can assume by "roll over" you are saying that the starter and engine are not turning when asked to start.

The first thing I suspect is the starter solenoid, that model has a history of poor contact through the solenoid. Here is a quick test, disconnect the battery cables at the battery, at the solenoid mounted on the bulkhead connect both large red cables together under one of the nuts, put the spark plug back in, turn the gas off at the exterior gas cock, leave the manual start switch in the off position, connect the positive battery cable to battery, now you will connect the negative cable just by hand at the battery and observe the cranking action, you will get  spark at the negative cable as you connect it but try not to let it scare you, we want to see the starter and engine turn over continuously until you disconnect the cable.

Like I said, I suspect the solenoid. If the starter turns the engine over with the test that I outlined then it's either the solenoid or the control board. Make sure the battery cells have enough liquid in them to cover the plates within each cell, and I assume you have a good battery in it, the way it sounds on the video it  should be ok.

This is a classic situation where the ground cable is not making good connection to the block. There's enough connection to get the starter going, but when the heavier amps are required, the connection can't carry the load. Double check the ground cable and re-locate to the engine block. Also insure the bonding cable from the block to the frame is in good shape.

I suspect a bad battery or battery connection.  It is possible it is the solenoid but what seems to be happening is the solenoid has enough voltage to pull in and as soon as the starter load hits the battery it puls the voltage too low to hold the solenoid.  How old is the battery and are the cables clean and tight.  No bolt on cables or clamp type.
