1966 gto 389 a/t Starter Problem
Car has been setting for fifteen years. For the past four weeks, I've had diesel in the cylinders. The engine will turn with a socket and ratchet easy.
I had the starter tested at Auto Zone. The said it needs replaced. I really don't place to much faith in the people. So I took the the unit apart carefully.
All looked good. Now it will engage. I can see the gear move forward. But when I put it back in, with the shims and on the front hanger. You can hear it engage, but it won't turn the flywheel. My question is, how far out does the gear go? Maybe it's not moving out far enough to catch the flywheel?
