Sorry on way 1st question went engine has new gas-fuel filter,line carb taken apart cleaned-starter taken apart wheel is engaging sanded and cleaned flywheel-magneto for sparkplug cleaned and working


Either the valves are out adjustment or the decompressor has failed.

Most OHV valves valve clearance open over time causing the decompression system to become in effective; however, the decopressor fails and even properly adjusted valves will still will not decompress the cylinder for starting.

I just repair a B&S 310000 series that had so much compression that the engine would even complete a cycle. After checking the valve adjustment I found that the decompressor on the cam had failed.

Leaks are normally from bad seals or ones put on engine wrong. Many snow blowers leak oil, very common. Electric start needs to be taken apart. Rust is problem most likely. When you engage the starter it kicks out the gear to turn over engine. Carefully remove the starter from engine, try to start starter an if the pinion gear does not kick out from starter disassembly it an try to clean rust away from action. Dont break wires around electric motor careful about getting dirt an rust in winding. Try to lube spring an moving parts around gear. One other thing it could be a sheared off gear on starter also.

My engine willnt turn over


Hi there:
Sounds like a starter issue. It will either be the starter cable, starter, or solonoid or maybe even the start switch. The trouble shooting steps will walk you thorugh the tests to determine the parts to buy. This will save you "throwing" parts at the engine.

Also be sure you can turn the engine over by hand. You can do this by putting a socket on the front of the engine and turning. Just be sure you have not filled the engine with water or it just siezed.



Keep in mind that repeated clicks means that the amps are not enough to turn starter over rarely is it the starter when this happens The neg battery cable to vehicle from neg battery post needs to be checked and cleaned and starter cables need to be checked and cleaned and tightened also. If the starter relay is bad it can do this if weak.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Having problem w starter on a fatboy 2004..engine starts sometimes.other times it spins like its not engagin, just keeps spinin. someone said it could b the starter clutch..help


Yes, they are probably correct. The "starter clutch", or "overrunning clutch", is the part that acts like the old Bendix in earlier starting systems. It's basically a "one way bearing" that locks up in order to turn the engine over but freewheels when the engine fires up. It is an integral part of the starter. You can replace it but the starter must be removed from the engine and then disassembled. If you can do the job yourself, you can save some money by not having to replace the entire starter. However since disassembling and reassembling the starter is labor time intensive, if you are going to pay to have the bike fixed, you'd probably be better off simply replacing the entire starter. The labor cost for the repair of the starter would quickly negate any savings you might have realized by repairing the starter.

Good Luck

Starter wont engauge just spins


If you can hear the starter motor spinning but the engine is not turning over, most likely the starter clutch, or over running clutch, in the starter is bad. This can be repaired without replacing the entire starter. It required that the starter be taken off the bike and disassembled. If you can do the job yourself, you can save money by repairing the starter. If you're going to have to pay someone to do the job, simply replace the starter. In this later case, the labor time involved in disassembly and reassembly of the starter would offset any savings realized by repairing the starter.

Good Luck

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT wont start. Has new battery. Starter was taken off car and works. Relays and fuses are fine. Power cables cleaned. Driver information center dim. Headlights are on when key...


PNP park neutral safety switch . Try moving gear selector to neutral . If it starts the switch is bad .
Voltage drop test starter circuit .
fusible relay ??? Now thats funny ! It's just a relay , not fusible relay ! A fusible link is a kind of fuse ,will melt with a short circuit. TEST ,TEST DON'T GUESS and if you can't test ,take it to a qualified repair shop. How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Starter Voltage Drop
The computer has nothing to do with it .

http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Free wiring diagrams ! Suggest you view a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the starter circuit . NO starter relay ! Enter vehicle info. under system click engine, then under subsystem click starting . You will when you turn the key to start it send's B+ voltage to the PNP switch ,from there it goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Very simple . Get a volt meter an test B+ voltage .

Dyna super glide will not spin over, took starter off and hooked to power and starter tested good


OK. I sent a "clarification request" to the other post that appeared here but I'll take a guess at the problem here as well. If the starter was spinning but not turning the engine over, it's probably the "overrunning clutch" inside the starter is damaged. This "overrunning clutch" does the same thing that the older "Bendix" used to do. It's basically a one-way bearing or sprag unit. It locks up and drives the clutch drum until the engine fires and then it free-wheels to keep the engine from over spinning the starter.

To replace the overrunning clutch, you must disassemble the starter itself as the part is inside of the Nippondenso type starters. You can go to http://www.bikebandit.com and see an exploded view of the starter. If you don't wish to try it, most shops will replace the part for you and then you can reinstall the starter on your bike.

Good Luck

Engine will not turn over


Start with backwheel, do visual check of disk pads, are they stuck to disk?. If yes, try operate foot brake and see if piston moves to press pads and releases. If not, disassemble caliper from disk, remove brake pads, clean exposed area around pistons using WD-40 spray, use clean cloth to wipe clean piston, push piston in using C-clamps until flat with cylinder, watch brake oil servoir not to over flow when pushing pistons in, stick both pads into caliper, push foot brake until it presses both pads.snug, remove pads, push piston back in again. Fit caliper and pads back onto bike, operate foot brake, check brake operations.
Use a 200-320 grit fine sandpaper, clean your disk surface, wipe with clean cloth so no rust dust sticks to disk. Clean pad surface with petrol, wash away any grimes and oils.
Using your hand you should be able now to turn freely the back wheel now..
Squirt about 5-10cc light oil into combustion chambers, ensure oil soaks onto piston rings, put in high gear and try combustion pistons to complete emptying-intake-exhaust-fitring cycle at least twice.
Do oil change oil with fresh new oil, ensure as much as possible old oil are drained out, change filter.
Clean out old fuel from tank + fuel bowl gunks, make sure all needles and float bowl are clean
While having sparkplugs out, spray into combustion chambers reasonable amount of starter spray fuid and put plugs and starter motor into place.
Now if you have kickstart try use it for a couple of turn else just use your electric starter motor, the motor should strat running. Keep it running for abouot 10-15 minutes before doing any riding ensuring oil have circulated properly.
Let me know if any other problem creeps-up.

Starter motor wont turn over


Make sure car is cold. Battery must be fully charge. Make sure all battery connections and to starter and engine/body are clean and tight. Have someone cranks the car as you check for cranking power to the starter solenoid;it is the smaller wire on the solenoid which you may need to remove. Do this test at least ten times using a 12volts test light. If power on every crank, it definitely sound like starter acting up. Keep me informed.
