Customer Question

I have adjusted the valves and it still drags when starting, though not quite as bad. I took the plugs out and turned the key and it turns over great. What other issue(s) could be causing this?

Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage when the starter is engaged? Has to stay above 8 volts! If it does, replace the starter.
