Hello. My name is***** the starter drive with some wd40 not try it does it spin up? If no do you have a volt meter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no wd 40, will get some........no voltmeter......thanks

If the starter drive is dry it won't engage correctly. So try that first then we can continue on if that doesn't work. We will be limited to what we can do without a volt meter. Can you borrow a volt meter?

I'm out and away from anybody and any store. It will take 24 hours for me to get the wd40 and the voltmeter.
