  • lightweight starter

    I got a lightweight skytec starter on a 0320 b2b i got 480 hours in three years my guess is i have about 700 starts since this was new is this about the expected life of a lightweight starter it will engauge but does not have enough power to turn the motor over sometimes push the button again and it will turn it over i checked all the electrical fittings and all seemed good mostly curiou what other people are getting out of lightweight starter thanks

    I would check all the cables, especially the battery cable, before swapping a starter that young. Older cables can look good but work poor. Found an aluminum cable last time I was having trouble with a starter...

    Good luck...

      Sounds like your battery or starter solenoid...load check your battery, if that is good, check the voltage drop across your starter solenoid.

        I replaced my battery last winter and it made a HUGE difference.
