Starter problems

642 2
Ok so since getting the car running again it's had the occasional problem starting. Turn the key and nothing, not a sausage. Every so often you might get a loud clunk from the starter and thats it.

So assumed it was probably a duff starter and picked up a known working but used one. Stuck it on tonight and wired it up and exactly the same thing. Either nothing or a loud clunk ( but mostly nothing at all).

The lights don't dim and the battery has plenty of charge.

Does the 147 have some sort of starter relay? if so where is it? What could be causing it?

Bloody car is doing my head in :cry: had loads of alfa's and never had one this bad
