88 starter help

Recommended Posts

3788 batteries and cables good, when hit switch lights are on but does nothing. Neutral switch is good, when I used screw driver to jump it, starter just spins doesn’t turn over motor. Any thoughts?

if everything is like you say and cables are clean and tight sounds like your starter you can try to tap the starter not hard once or twice with a small hammer then try to start it I've done that quite a few times to get through the rush till we could get a starter on it.

My 3788 has both a clutch switch and a "park" switch. I have had some trouble with the park switch at times.  If you are jumping from the battery cable terminal to the small solenoid terminal and the starter spins with out engaging you have starter drive problems.  If you just jump the 2 big terminals the solenoid won't shift the drive into the flywheel.
