Re: K1500 starting problems
The problem is the starter will engage the flywheel, but will not turn it. I don't see any problems with the fuel delivery, since it runs fine, once it turns over.
Not sure if shiming will help, since the original starter did not have them and did this also, that's why I changed it.
It does not grind, like a flywheel missing teeth, it just does not turn at all. The headlights do not dim and there are no signs of excess load from the starter.
With all the items changed, there has been no noticable difference with the systems.
Someone told me it may be a voltage drop at the starter, but the only things that have not been changed are the nuetral saftey switch (auto trans) and the wiring from the switch to the starter.
If it did it all the time I could figure it out, but it works more often than not.
