    Starter-gctid396320

    Is it the solinoid? Doesn't do it all the time. A light click, several times and it will start. Afraid to take it out.

    I checked the battery connections and charge, checked the connections on the starter and all are good. I thought it may be a problem with the shift, throttle, but have check and it does it regardless.

    If the solenoid is clicking, the magnetic portion is working.

    This leads to either the contacts failing, or the starter motor armature brushes are not making continuity.

    A couple of clicks, and the mild vibration causes momentary continuity.

    If this is not the issue, check your cable connections.

          Sorry, on the boat. Probably need a new starter or start with brushs?

            Possibly.

            All DC starter motors require armature brushes. When/if they become corroded, the brushes no longer make good continuity.

            No continuity = no armature rotation.

              Good new is it wasn't the starter. Turned out to be a "slave' solinoid near the carb. Much easier and cheaper repair.
