Engine is in: Ready to start after rebuild, but only get click, click, charging more

Engine is in: Ready to start after rebuild, but only get click, click, battery charging more (2 amps overnight). Could it be something else causing the engine not to spin over.

Will try again in morning. The starter is nearly new.

Thank You.

Regards,

Bat was good. I charged it yesterday afternoon (some fast and few hours slow). The windows and lights work, so...

It goes click when turn key.

Newer Sachs clutch.
Newer Bosch Starter.

Does the starter have a good earth to the Body? Even if the solenoid is working (clicking) you still need a good earth or the motor will not engage.

Didn't forget the ground cable at the back of the transmission?

Does the engine turn over by hand? (It's not stuck or stiff)?

What Rex said. Pull the plugs and see if you can turn the engine over by hand. If so, leave the plugs out and try turning the engine over with the starter.

Had the same issue. Found that we forgot to connect the large black wire to starter +.

Removed starter. Had it checked on bench. Perfect. Checked grounds, replaced negative side battery cable. Replaced battery.

Friend came in. With two people, checked power to Solenoid. Yes, ok. Checked power to starter. No power to starter.

Now that have no power to starter need to determine why. Anybody have a schematic diagram. Don't expect a relay to be a culprit. I lowered engine a little again, and ran my hands over the wire onto the engine. All seems fine. Took a break.

Once figure this out, engine is ready to be primed, and then it is out for a break in drive.

Thanks again.

the wire (cable) comes strait from the batt.-check the cnnection again,and the grd. again (big cable) if you have pwr back to the syl. you should be able to jump it there and get it titurn over

you do not need a wire ,just use a srew driver and go accross the big terminal to the lil one and it should act like it ought to....If not take the big cable direct to the starter (be brief ) and it should take off,,how ever it will not engage your flywheel.....if none off this pruduce results your starter is junk (if for sure you batt is ok).
Beware do not run yourself over in any of these test!!!

Stupid maybe , but are you sure its the solenoid thats clicking?
I had the same problem. Turned out to be the CIS clicking and there was no power to the solenoid due to corroded connections.

Terminal tight, replaced the negative terminal. Solenoid is the click comes from , and it gets power but not the starter. Hmmm...
