The starter died on my 78 VW Rabbit Diesel.
I replaced the bad starter with a rebuilt Autolite starter. When I
engaged the starter, the starter motor spun, but did not make contact
with the flywheel to turn the engine over. I replaced that starter
with another new/rebuilt starter. Again, same problem. The starter
spins but does not make contact with the flywheel.
I also replaced the brass bushing....thinking that might have something
to do with it. The battery is good, and fully charged.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
