thank yuo for all your info, last night i crawled under the truck and saw that as the truck sat ( all yesterday ) the bendix wasnt fully retracted into the starter... i can move it in about 1/8 or a bit less so i will assume this is my problem
today after work its going to be removed and ill figure out what/who to call. i suppose if theres a way to fix it i can fabricate something but im sure its more then just that.
if anyone knows a way to fix/replace my problem please let me know
thankyou all again, couldnt have found this without you all!!!
