I was out tonight and ready for my next run and the boat did not start. I could hear the starter and it sounded like the gear was not engaging the fly wheel. We did not crank it for more that a second or two but the end of the little cilinder on the top of the starter got red hot for a second when we turned the key. It sounded alot quieter than I would expect if it was just the engaging gear deal spinning. I tried hitting it but not really hard and couldn't get it to do any thing. Just wonder your guys thoughts and where I could get a replacement starter or do they usually rebuild those. I checked out but did not see any starters. Also what will I expect for a price to get going again. The engine is a PCM 351. Thanks

you need a new selenoid. Look for your local auto electric rebuilder and get it rebuilt.

So I took my starter off to check it out and the housing was all cracked in a couple different spots. I took it in to get rebuilt and he said it was shot. I got a new one that has the solenoid on it and hooked everything up. It cranked over and seemed like it worked just fine. The guy had me put the wire from the battery and the wire from the starter together to bypass the solenoid and a small jumper from and old solenoid to the new solenoid. My question is can't I totally eliminate the old solenoid now, put some extentions on the other wires and bring them down to the new solenoid?
