Second opinion] Hi, Mechanic's...

Second opinion] Hi,

Mechanic's Assistant: Hello. How can I help?

Hi,

Mechanic's Assistant: Hi. How can I help?

I have a Kobelco SK35SR-5 excavator fitted with a Hitachi S114-883 starter motor, which has 4,000 hrs. Motor started perfectly 1st turn of key every time. Yesterday would not start, only solenoid click noise, this reduced in intensity after a few turns.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Construction Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Please see earlier note, I have finally been able to remove starter, gears in good order. I assume that starter needs overhaul or replacement. Also maybe solenoid. I would like your professional diagnoses please. Regards ***** *****

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the construction mechanic to know before I connect you?

Am I on the right track?
