Problem with electric starter on 81 fl250
« on: November 11, 2015, 01:44:21 PM »
On my 81 250 some times the goki electric starter  seems like its not getting enough power to turn I over . I checked the battery fully charged .if I let it set and go back to it it works I put the battery in my 350 works fine .is there away to check the motor in the starter our solenoid  .if I pull the spark plug it turns it over no problem

I doubt it is the solenoid if it is trying to turn over. Possibly the starter needs a rebuild. I have not opened one of those up, but if similar to the 350, you could pull the end cap to check the condition of the brushes.
