Hey guys, so kinda a weird problem... I finished putting the car together and when I turn the key I can hear the pump and the injectors (until they were primed), and I can hear the starter try to do something... but whatever that is, it's not start the car. It kinda sounds like the starter when it sticks out is hitting the flywheel, very weird issue. Maybe I wired it backwards or something but I really don't think so.. anyway, hoping you guys had some insight. Thanks

also - its not the battery, hooked up a jumper pack to make sure it wasn't that.

figured it out - unhooked clutch safety wire and it engaged.

Sensor must be busted

The little rubber bumper on the pedal is probably MIA and not contacting the switch. 9/10 times thats what happens, the stopper disintegrates over the years.

I think I may still have a couple of those clutch bumper rubbers around if you need one. I wouldn't charge $8 to ship one to you like a retail company.

I was looking to order 8 $1.50 seat pins for a BMW last week, and the place wanted $14 to ship them. The total weight of all 8 had to be about an ounce.
