This morning I turned the key and nothing!! :thumbdown I shorted out the starter soleniod contacts and got myself to work. Other than the starter what else could it be? Can you buy just the solenoid or is this Hitachi thing one unit? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks, my parts guy can't find any of the solenoids anywhere. What's happening to all the parts? I can get a starter assy. at napa for $150, but I'd rather replace the solenoid.

All the fuses/relays are ok, swapped 'em and never got it to crank. I'll just keep my charred screwdriver handy!

Thanks for your help Henry, but it wasn't the starter - it was the clutch position switch. I didn't even think that was a possibility seeing as I soldered the contacts together a couple years ago. Well, the other end of the contact broke on the micro switch and I finally fixed it for good tonite.

Should I keep the starter I just bought installed? Or send it back and reclaim $75???

FWIW I have some pics of the clutch switch mod I did.
