In reply to # 1505373 by Jeff Givens Now the starter motor runs, but the bendix will not engage.
FWIW, that is sometimes a symptom of the starter not getting enough current. I once had a conductor break inside the battery that caused the Bendix to apparently malfunction; and I've helped someone else who had a poor connection between the battery ground strap and the body.
