Think I fried the starter on my C-A

Help! I tried to start my '52 CA the other day. Flooded it, then next time I tried to start it there was a loud "bang" and now nothing happens when I pull the starter or push the starter button. What could I have done? I had no problems with it previously. Battery is fine too. should I remove the starter and look inside? Where can I get a new/rebuilt one? Thanks!

Hi Laura, i always try to look on the sunny side first. I tend to agree with Steve. I think the bang you heard might have been a backfire. This could have kicked back on the starter and jammed it. I have had this happen. Took the starter off and inspected it. There was nothing visual wrong with it. Put it back on and it has been working fine ever since. Worth try. Good luck. Dave.

Sounds like something either locked up the engine or maybe the engine coughed back from being flooded and broke the starter nose. Or like Steve mentioned, it might be stuck! Sounds like an inspection of the starter is in order. A "bang" is not a good sound to hear... Steve B.

HI Laura

I go with the rest of the ideas. Just make sure the battery is OK they can blow up to. I was not sure about what you meaning when you said the battery is fine.

starter may be "stuck" in the flywheel gear. Pull the starter and inspect the area. test the starter on the ground. Can you turn the motor by hand?? usually if starter is stuck, motor will not turn easy.
