Hey guys, so today i was working on the raptor. (what else is new) :banghead:
The starter motor itself was stuck in the stator cover housing. I tryed banging out the starter motor with a mallet, and a ball paean hammer. I eventually got it and got what needed to be done. I just got it all back together and now the starter motor wont turn over :mad: I cleaned out the inside of the starter motor, and reassembled it correctly. I also checked my grounds and hooked up my wiring correctly. I took the starter gears off just so the starter motor could spin freely and nothing. Did I mess something up? I noticed before the starter shaft had a little free play (back and forth) and now theres nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Obviously, if the starter turned before and it doesn't now, you screwed something up. Pull it, and manually turn it - is it seized? You may have bound it up during re-assembly.

Also check the brushes.

Figured. I can manually turn it, but only if i use vice grips.

i just changed mine and cant really see where something like what you are describing could have happened. I did the starter clutch at the same time and when i took the stator cover off the starter was a bit difficult to get off the cover but it only needed a little coaxing with a rubber mallet. I cant really see where you went wrong...

Ive done it before but i dont see this time how it got messed up. Either way, beating it a little bit could have messed something up, ill have to double check. When i hit the start button, the relay just clicks.

I know, that sounds a little much. I didnt actually "beat" like to where the point it was mushroomed and what not, more like tapping, with a little force, but i didnt think it would effect anything, as ive done that before. Guess this time it didnt work out too good :eek:
