What goes wrong w/the starter?

Be sure the starter gear is spaced correctly to the flywheel/flexplate ring gear.

More on starters and etc. here. More troubleshooting and how to install a remote solenoid is here.

Good luck.

327NUT Cullen and Vininie are on the right track, I think most continuous starter problems are due to electrical issues. Make sure your battery is getting FULLY charged, all of your elec. connections are corrosion free and tight......and I always run an additional #1 or #0 welding cable ground from the battery to the nearest bellhousing bolt by the starter. Overkill???? maybe but I don't have starting problems either.

vinniekq2 I use the same starter that Warren johnson uses,or used in the past.Its about full size though.I bought it from lukovich engines,so far trouble free for 7 years. Check your wires.Use welding cable if the battery has been relocated.Super high compression and a lot of lead timing can be bypassed with a kill switch or ignition retard for start up.

cullencombs First off i would find out why the current starters aren't lasting. Whats happening to them? Unless you're running high compression a stock style starter should have no issues. I run a jegs mini starter just for header clearence and love it. It hasnt failed me yet.
