Dune buggy starter problems.

Asked by Apr 15, 2014 at 11:39 PM about the Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.
