there is no delay in the operation of the starter. I've had a couple of people listen for the location. most state it comming from the back of the engine compartment. It does not make the noise consistantly and i cant make it occour on my own. Sorry it's beenhard to pin point
no problem at all. I would be more apt to think that noise can be the starter drive possibly clashing with the flywheel plate teeth the solenoid on the starter making the noise.
where you able to inspect the teeth of the flywheel plate or the teeth of the starter chewed up or show any signs of them not meshing properly ?
I would rule out a transmission or clutch issue as the engine physically has not cranking over or moved yet correct ?
Correct. Thats why its been so frustrating. I didnt think anything should be moving until I started cranking. i havent inspected the flywheel plate or teeth on the starter yet. i was under the rig this morning thinking about tearing out the sarter for a closer look.
should the noise change or stop after i crank. because it doesnt seem to effect the noise while cranking. i will tear out the starter and give everything a good inspection
Will do. how do i contact you with the results, this may take more than a few minutes...
Thanks wish me luck.
