    rover v8 starter

    I recently fitted a high torque starter motor. The car will start 3 or 4 four times no problem then when i try again all you can here is a clicking sound.The only way to start it then is to grab the fan belt and turn the engine slightly.The starter is brand new and it is the second one i have tried.The car is automatic and there are no strange noises when starting.This happens if the car is warm or cold.Hope somebody can help cheers...

    old ones can be sticky but new ones shouldn't. I would suggest you look at your battery. Put a meter across the terminals and measure the voltage when cranking. also check the tooth pitch from starter to flexplate is correct.

    more a case of knowing the flexplate tooth count and making sure your starter suits it, sounds like it's fine but best to know.
