Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Classic
You may have a problem with the "over running" clutch in your starter. The way your starter works, the jackshaft must be fully extended and engaged with the ring gear on the outer clutch basket before the starter motor turns over. If the starter motor spins and the engine does not turn, it's the starter clutch (over running) clutch that is bad.
You can replace the clutch if you have the know how and tools and save some money. If you can't do the work yourself, you're better off replacing the entire starter. The labor time to disassemble, replace the clutch, and reassemble the starter will eat up any savings recognized from do it this way instead of simply replacing the starter. The labor time for the job will almost double but you can price it out to see which way is better.
