start problem

could be, it sounds like the starter is spinning, but it won't connect to start. Definitely not the battery. Thanks, JC

If the starter spins but does not engage then you have a bad starter bendix. Replace your old bendix with a new bendix or starter drive.

yup..I concur that the problem is with the starter..But make sure before you take it off that you don't have a bad spot on your flywheel (missing teeth)..I've had that happen to me...If that is the case, turn the flywheel until you see teeth...

good luck!

If that is a 69 ford starter then if it spins at all the solenoid is good. Those depended on the magnetism from the armature when energized to pull in the drive. under the cover that is on the starter there is a metal arm that gets pulled in when the starter gets power. These were known to stick. The bendex could also be bad. This is an easy starter to repair as there is no solenoid on it.
You can test it with a set of jumper cables an a battery. Connect the + to the stud and the minus to the case of teh starter and see if the drive shoots forward and spins. If it does then you need a bendix if not the actuator arm is binding. Used to see this a lot if the flywheel cover was missing.
