Atomic 4 rebuild - Removing and testing the starter

Starter on engine
The starter is held on with two 9/16" bolts. Remove these to remove the starter.

There is a great video on bench testing a starter here:

Following the directions in the video, these are the steps that I took to test:

  • Attach a switch between the ignition terminal and the positive terminal on the solenoid.  The ignition terminal is the one with an "S" beside it. 

  • Attach jumper cables from the battery to the positive terminal on the solenoid and the negative to a bolt on the body of the starter. 
  • Test
My starter tested fine. Here is the video of my test:
