I killed the engine to pull the truck up and hasnt turned over since. Wires check out good. Battery still new. I put a screw driver across solenoid and still wont even try. I hear a clicking noise but nothing... Any ideas?
Around the starter is a metal band that holds the solenoid. That band acts as a ground. Try moving it around to get a good contact. If arcing across doesn't work, it may have melted inside and fused together.
Pull the recoil starter (or debris screen) off - 4 bolts, 10 mm heads...
Get ahold of the flywheel and spin it backwards. Sometimes the starter drive will engage the ring gear and stick. The starter can't develop enough inertia to turn over.
I took the elec. motor apart and the magnet sleeve was shattered. I guess that was the problem. I heard the vtwin is nearly impossible to start with the pull rope, is that true, otherwise ill get one coming.
