   I will send you the wiring diagram for your starting system. The system is pretty basic. You can bypass the relay to check the starter motor itself. This will give you an idea of the system and wherew to start.  I hope I have been of some help.  Thanks,  Joegraphic

At times when i turn the key the engine turns over and when the engine goes to fire it cuts out. Then turn the key again theres nothing at all even the engine does not turn.

It sounds like the connection is being lost. Test the voltage at the starter itself. If you have power there at the small wire while cranking, the starter is bad. If not back track up the wiring diagram I sent you to locate the problem. Thanks, Joe

Hi joe don't have the diagram you sent. when i disconnect the battery and reconnect it, the engine turn but after a couple of times there me the starter sounds strong.

I can see the diagram. I sent it with my first answer. The starter sounding strong has nothing to do with it. If the connection is poor, it will work or not. Thanks, Joe
