excessive starter motor noise


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


I have a Vitesse Mk1 2litre.


My starter has recently started to make, a lounder, crunching noise when engaging (happens about 1 in 6 times). bit worried it is damaging the fly wheel ring gear and less importantly the starter pinion. Had gearbox out a month or so back. and both had very good teeth IMO, though not an expert.


Starter securing bolts are not loose.


Any advice as always, very much appriciated.
