It will not start with key. We have had the starter tested and battery. It has a new
altanater. It has power. We can push start it.

Igniton switch perhaps

Something is preventing the signal getting to the starter from the key. You should be seeing 12 VDC on the small starter wire when the key is in the start position. Check interlocks like the neutral safety switch and perhaps a after market alarm system. Check the fuses and relays too.
