Mark 75 starter

Postby mark 55 » Mon Jul 22, 2019 4:15 am

When i put a jumper cable on the starter, it spins but the solenoid does not move either up or down to engage the flywheel. Think it needs lubrication? Is there something simple i’m overlooking? Would like to turn it over to see what compression numbers are.

This motor is new to me. Thanks. Brian Mahoney!

sounds like your starter needs disassembly for cleaning and lubrication

Engage the Bendix by hand first, then hit the starter...
