Hello all, I'm new here and I'm hoping some of you may be able to help. I did the obvious which is to change the starter and that did absolutely nothing to fix my problem. I also tried jumping the terminals of the starter relay with a screwdriver and same thing... didnt help.
I bought this Warrior used and it had this problem when I bought it. The starter has a really tough time turning over the motor for some reason... It always starts after a while but there is something wrong here.
I took this video so that you could see what I mean... The starter sounds like its struggling and it'll turn the motor in a very erratic fashion. I took the cover off the left side of the motor so that you could see the motor turn over every 3 seconds... For some reason the starter has a lot of trouble turning the motor in the compression cycle. The new starter I bought was a cheap $50 ebay starter but this cant be the problem can it? Someone wouldnt mass produce an aftermarket starter that didnt work... Do they make a more powerful starter for our motors that you can point me to? The motor turns over and runs GREAT once its started but getting it started sucks.
