the other day, i went to start up my case 801-b and while cranking, i turned the switch off and the starter kept turning. i quickly disconnected the battery and it shut off. i now try to reconnect the battery and the starter turns on. I then disconnected the whole switch and the starter still turns on when i connect the battery. do i need a new switch or is it shorting somewhere?

If the starter begins to turn the engine over when the batt is reconnected and you indicated the key switch is disconnected its your solenoid switch on top of the starter.

Normally when you turn the key power is sent to a solenoid coil which closes the main switch connecting the battery cable to the starter itself. If the solenoid switch is stuck in the closed position the starter will turn the engine until the batt is disconnected.

A low battery can cause that to happen ya I know sounds funny but it is true. Or the soliniod is sticking/bad or you ignition switch maybe bad

sounds like either bendix is stuck or there is a wiring problem inside the starter or solenoid. Sounds strange, but try whacking the starter and or solenoid with a rubber or rawhide mallet if you can get to it.

That did it. i just hit the solenoid with a wrench a few times and it worked again.
