5 Answers


battery cables both on..the neg to block/frame? starter wires/alignment ok?


Does it turn over? Does it try to fire or backfire? Does the starter turn the engine over to try to start it? Lots of unanswered questions to be able to troubleshoot this one.

Starter is good. Does not turn engine. Like if it doesnt engage flywl. As soon as it tries to click, thats it. No movement. Can i try spacers?


Check the battery to see if it is fully charged.


Check to see if the started is bolted in completely and snug to the engine. You say 'as soon as it tries to click"... does it click? Do the headlights work? If so, turn them on and have someone hit the key while you see if the head lights stay bright or go dim. If the battery is fully charged, and the cables are all tight then the problem is in the starter.
