    FX140 Starter Issue

    I am working on a '04 FX140. When I push the starter button sometimes the starter turns normally then starts, sometimes slowly but still starts. Battery is fully charged. This ski has had this problem for sometime now, but since it is used for water rescue in big surf the drivers get a bit nervous when she turns over slowly. Starter, starter clutch? Either way seems the motor is coming out. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bad earth? Quite a common problem.

    FX140 Starter Issue

    Would that be the main ground cable to the starter? Thanks
