The restoration continues!
This is my first electric start engine, and I am genuinely stunned to measure the starting current at 225A. Measured with a Fluke clamp-on meter and a known-good, strong battery (from my truck; my boat battery won't turn the engine at all), the data is right there on the meter: 225A.
This is MUCH higher than a typical car starter, so I have to ask: is this correct? Or is this starter in need of rebuilding / replacing?
I've googled but can't seem to find a definitive answer. Anyone know for sure?
