KEY OFF!

INSURE STARTER IS NOT HUNG IN THE FLYWHEEL TEETH (REMOVE, IF NECESSARY)

TURN THE ENGINE A FULL REVOLUTION, OR MORE, WITH A WRENCH OR SOCKET

IF IT TURNS FINE

IF POSSIBLE, HAVE BUDDY TURN IT SLOW. GAZE INTO THE STARTER HOLE. INSPECTING THE FLYWHEEL.A GOOD FLASHLIGHT/ A MAGIC MARKER/ AND MAMA'S BIG HAND MIRROR, AIDS WITH THIS PROCESS

STARTER TEETH/ BEARINGS/ BUSHINGS/ SHAFT/ ETC; MAY BE BENT OR WORN.

MAY ALSO BE FLYWHEEL PROBLEMS. MESSED UP TEETH, ETC.

STARTER MAY NEED SHIMS, TO BACK IT OFF THE FLYWHEEL A LITTLE

JUST SOME THOUGHTLESS THOUGHTS!

I have turned it by hand pulled plugs turns fine counter c/w. Clockwise it only turns a partial revolution then stops. Starter engages and disengages fine its not hanging up.
