I'm not sure I understand. What do you mean by turn the crank a 1/4 of the way? Is the starter not engaging or does the starter engage and the engine not start? Also, is it the starter clicking?
Here is a link that explains how to test the starter circuit. Take a look through it if the problem is the starter won't engage.
If the starter does engage but the engine fails to start, see if this link helps:
Let me know exactly what is happening, if it happened all at once, and if possible, record what it is doing and upload it for me to hear.
