Dune buggy starter problems.
Bought Dune Buggy, dual carb 1600 bored to 1855, 4 speed manual, 1965 frame, 12 volt system. Having problems starting, pulled old starter out, teeth were gone at tips. Autozone looked up part for 1969 beetle and found that old starter was for the automatic not manual. Replaced with new starter (for manual) but now engine turns very slowly, but wont start. Any ideas appreciated.
starter mounted too deep ,needs shimmed out ,maybe that's why the old one wore at the tips only
can anyone help me? bought a sandrail, 3.8 , adapter plate and what looks to be 72 to 74 transmission. I can't find a starter that works,i've tried them all, nothing works! Measurements say they should work but bendics hits flywheel and just grinds.. please help!
