    Steve and I talked on the phone, chatted it out, and he seemed stumped. I told him that I had another engine with a starter on it. He said pull that starter and try it, I bet it's the starter. He was right. Now, I have to go out to dinner. Mother F'er.

    When CW and I hooked up for me to get the bike he built, we had starter issues as well.... Maybe with a rebuild on the engine, the starter should be gone through as well.

    Best of luck!!!! Can't wait to hear how you like the engine!!!!

    Clean all the brush derbis out of the starter, clean the magnets and windings with electrical contact cleaner then put a new set of brushs in her.
