Starting issues
So as stated in my last thread, my build came to a pause for starting issues. So before I pull the starter, is there any other problems that could prevent the car from turning over?

I find when I turn the key, I get a click from the starter, but it does not happen every time I turn the key, sometimes its silent, I have checked all the fuses and also replaced a couple noticed blown but nothing has changed in terms of it starting.

Any advice? Thanks!

95% sure its the starter. Just change it, its not a fuse issue....If you get a click but no start it means only two things; bad starter, or not enaugh power to the starter (bad battery, bad connection, etc).

Yeah I already started taking things apart.. if you remove the top of the manifold and move the harness its not that hard to remove... on the m44 that is
