Hi there,

Can you some specs on the engine please?

You can chase your tail with difficult hot starting, but if it has too much timing then the starter will struggle.

Do you know how much timing the engine idles at?

Battery CCA rating?

Starter cable and engine ground cable size?

Is the ground cable at the starter case, bellhousing?
