Sticky Starter

Had a case of Sticky starter today. Was clicking away and not doing anything. Wasn't much trouble as I only had to move the teeth a bit and up it popped and fired off straight away.
Question;
Would a bit of grease sort this?

Nope, the bendix is meant to be clean and dry, no grease, oil or anything else. Strip it down, clean and re-assemble.

if it was clicking and not rotating, and manually rotating the pinion made it work, then the brushes may want a look at, before it buggers up the commutator.

It wasn't lifting up to the flywheel. I know a guy who used to work at TVR who's good with things like this, will throw it his way. I'll just feck it up.
Cheers lads

definetley worth a look at, its a 1/2 hour job for someone who knows what theyr'e doing, and brushes are one hell of a lot cheaper than a starter.

Hi John, do not know if this will help but I have just had the same problem on my 150 mariner it just was a bad starter. All was checked starter etc but nothing. The culprit was corroded cables from bat switch to engine result full charge not getting to starter hence not enogh to turn her over. Maybe worth a look.
