If I turn the pulley by hand, it moves fine so everything internally seems OK. Connections on the starter seem fine as well. The generator & oil lights come on when I turn the key... Just no cranking.

When you say it won't crank, you mean that the starter doesn't turn the engine over, right? (Have to ask, because there are too many people out there who don't know what "crank" means.)

If the answer above is yes, then when you turn the key to START, does anything happen? Any sound? Any dimming of the dash lights?


I turn the key to the *start* position and I hear a click, the generator light comes on, the oil light comes on, etc... The starter does not turn the engine at all.
