Re: Help! intermittent starter motor...
It sounds like what I had -I took off the starter motor, opened up the solenoid (the cylinder on top of the starter) buy undoing the 3 8mm nuts and taking out the insides and spring and found that what lubrication that was there was acting more like glue. I cleaned it all out and sprayed in some chain grease, put it back together and as good as new!
The pain was getting at the starter to get if off, only way is underneath and dropping the centre engine mount. Of course don't forget to disconnect the battery before you start!!
If you have a look at this and can answer my question about the plug I cannot find a home for, I would appreciate it - it's a 2 wire jobbie (black and black/green) I don't know (cannot see) where/what it goes back onto.
