Subject: 1930 2 litre starter motor failure
I have a 1930 2 litre supercharged Lagonda. This underwent a full engine re-build last year. The starter motor has failed in that although it turns - a whirring sound can be heard - it is clearly not now engaging with the engine.

Does anyone have experience of this problem and what may be required to resolve it - and how? i can forward a short video by WhatsApp if that would help.

Thank you

John

Dear John

To access the starter motor assembly, best is to remove the front seats and the floorboard. But for a quick look you also can creep under the car, left side, and have a look. The starter motor has a sort of Hardy disc coupling between the motor and the drive, which can disengage. I also once had a spline that fell out, I could fix this "en route". And there is a spring that can break (recommended standard spear part), see club spares.

I have attached scans from the Vintage Lagonda Handbook and the 2 Litre Low Chassis Type Instruction Book. Both higly remmended and can be supplied by the Club
