    98 Pro 785 starter or solenoid question

    Hey hulkers, got another 785 last week. Really nice one, looks damn near new! So anyhow, I went to start it and the starter made a zipping sound. AHH, so I had to bust my ass and change the starter with another one I had laying around. Did it and same issue, so I tried another starter and same issue. Now I know for damn sure I do not have have 2 bad starters in a row. Any ideas on what it could be. I am think the solenoid in the box, when I opened it up I noticed the solenoid was not bolted just kind of hanging. Any other help would be very helpful, Thanks once again in advance.

    Sounds like your bendix is not engaging.
