  • 8N starte jammed
  • My solenoid wouldn't click and started to smoke so I put on a new one but even though it did click , the starter would not engage. So I figured I had to remove the starter but now I'm in a pickle as the mounting plate will not separate from the frame. There is very little room behind the starter and it is hard turning those bolts to draw in the outer casing. The outer case has separated from the mounting plate but that leaves the armature and shaft still jammed. I'm wondering what could cause the jamming, maybe bendix is broken? Any ideas what to try next?

  • Pull out the petcock and dipstick, a small chisel in there and see if it is just stuck with age.
