Re: B2400 won't start
the "click" of the solenoid is a common problem, it's a wiring /resistance issue in the key switch and wiring harness, largely due to age and dirt.
There is a fix for this issue, but it sounds like the starter itself is now having issues.
The starter does not have a helix to toss the drive gear into the flywheel, it relies on the solenoid to do this. while doing this, it also energizes the drive motor.
if the motor is spinning it sounds as if maybe the drive gear "bendix" ( one way clutch) is slipping. similar to a sprag clutch in a transmission
How much was the rebuild on the starter ?
6c140-59210 is the part number for starter, look on Messicks.com for a price.
there are part numbers for individual parts, but they are priced so you're more apt to buy a starter ( $400 for the drive assy for the starter )
as for the clicking, a quality 4 pin 20A relay and some minor wiring will fix it easily. you can buy kit's to do the same thing for $18 - $150
I have a B2400, and experienced the same issues, and almost replaced the starter until I did some web searching and found the relay fix. starts first time every time now.
Improvise, Adapt, Overcome !
