I tried to start my 68 Z today and the starter would not kick in and turn engine. I pulled the starter and put cables on it and it worked good on the work bench. I put it back in the car turned the key and still just had a humm or buzz from under the hood.Any ideas? Thanks
The solenoid isn't pulling in - its fork extends the Bendix to the flywheel and engages the high-current contacts inside the solenoid that feed battery voltage to the armature.
Battery cables - condition? Contact areas clean and shiny at both ends of both cables?
Battery - Load test? What voltage do you read across the terminals?
