Starter Motor 16/6

Post by Mklintott » Mon Feb 10, 2020 12:24 pm

The spring inside my starter motor broke in the summer so the motor whirred but no action.
I got a new spring from Steve Newton (thank you Steve for the prompt response) over Christmas and had a local garage fit it up for me. Unfortunately it seems to be jammed now and the starter motor won't turn. Before I take the unit back to my local are there any tricks to watch out for when doing this? It looks like a pretty basic piece of kit but clearly something has been missed or wrongly installed by my local chap.

Any advice welcome and much appreciated...

Has the starter motor engaged and seized the engine or is it just the starter motor seized?
