Hi everybody, ok. i attempted to get the starter out. i remove 2 screws and pull out the motor. After looking online at what a new one look like i can see that i only took the motor out and not the casing. The casing is bolted with bolts on the opposite side. i can barely touch one bolt band the other side is not reachable. The solenoid is mounted on the casing. The solenoid seemed to be working fine. The motor has a gear that goes inside a gear box. all teeth look good. The solenoid is on top of the started and probably did not get wet. I am thinking buying a starter and replacing the motor only. Is usually the voltage drop cause by corrosion in the motor? Any thoughts? Thank you. Andre

I would replace the entire starter. Taking a new one apart to just use the motor will void any warrantee.

I still think the solenoid is part of the problem as well as the connections to it.

I am back. I replaced the starter. i used a fully charged battery and the same thing happen. Cranks slowly then stop. This time the negative post of the battery stared melting the rubber cover. i now suspect a short somewhere. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? i do have a volt/ohm meter and know how to use it but i need some guidance on where to start. Thank you so much. Andre

Check all the big connections for tight and corrosion. With a new battery and a new starter, spinning over shouldn't be a problem. I think you have a bad connection soneplace. Try the other end of the negative cable first. That is my 2 cents...,

Are the battery cable and starter cable connection corrosion free?

Slave solenoid connection corrosion free?

Check slave solenoid for voltage drop across the two large terminals when cranking, should have zero drop. (Volt meters red and black lead on either terminal).

If all this checks out. Pull all of the spark plugs and examine them.

With the plugs out see if the engine cranks better.

Use a strap wrench on the balancer and see if the engine turn easily by hand.

Curious, have you checked your oil? Is it clean? Milky?
