1998 tdx starter motor?


Hi everyone

Great forum

Hope someone can help; I have a 1998 tdx Fourtrak which appears to have a starter solenoid problem. It is abroad at the moment and I am here in the UK for another week. Question: is a 1994 Fourtrak starter the same as mine and will it fit without problems? I understand that there are things that I can check/replace before 'writing off' the original starter completely, but even so it would be useful to have a replacement starter/solenoid as long as it is the correct type.

Thanks in advance



Before condeming the solonoid it would be prudent to check the more obvious problems, these being the motor brushes on a fourtrak. These units are very durable, the main problem is the brushes wearing down, replacement is easy and brushes should cost around £6 a set from reputable suppliers.
