Hey guys, I'm over here on a visit & after a short flight I go to crank up again & the starter won't turn over. It does one 'click' and the starter gear is extended into the flywheel & that's all I get. The battery is a good Concorde, 2 years old, that I occasionly put on the maintainer. We tried a jump, with no change, I didn't think it was the battery anyway. It's an older starter, though I don't have the log books here. We were trying to leave Monday, even afternoon would work. I may go over later & see if I can get the starter out & check a few things, any ideas that may help? 30 miles North of Detroit.
