xb clevo starter motor

hi guys,new to the forum game,i have almost finished my xb 74 sedan,351 clevo,c4 auto, 9 inch,you know the usual suspects.A while back i replaced all the wiring from the battery in the rear to the front starter,that is 2.5 hp reduction stater motor cv from rocket industries.Now all wiring has been checked,and the motor has been started for at least 20-30 times no sweat,battery voltage has been chected at 13.5 volts plus 1000 cranking amps,also tried jump starting from another car. only the pin is firing but not engaging the flywheel.Should i run a socket on the crank to move a little in case there is an alignment problem? regards phill

Re: xb clevo starter motor

yeap that could be worth a shot. It sounds like a bad connection somewhere. Is the starter spinning and not engaging or is it just a click. If just a click then connection or faulty starter perhaps.
