I'm having a starter problem that I hope one of you can help me with. And yes, if any of you are wondering, I am a natural procrastinator - but this is about my Blazer. Problem: The starter will not spin the engine. What I've done: Made sure I'm using a good strong battery Installed new battery cables Put on a rebuilt starter Tried to shim it 4-5 different ways (no change in performance) Direct wired the battery to the starter I've turned the starting ring gear with a pry bar to ensure the engine is not frozen I've taken out all of the spark plugs to make sure I don't have a hydraulic lock of any kind What happens: When I turn on the ignition, I get bright lights on the dash When I hit the starter, it throws the starter gear into the ring gear then clicks like the battery is getting low, except much harder - like the battery is strong but the starter cannot turn. I plan to take the rebuilt starter back to the store to have it load tested to see if I got a bad one, but I'm at my wits end here. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif What else could be the problem? Any ideas anyone?
