Subject:      Dead starter fixed
Content-type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"

Thanks for everyone's help yesterday with my potentially dead starter. Turned out to be a stuck starter.

"The starter gear may be hung up in the flywheel, which happens from time to time...put the van in third gear and push it BACKWARDS to unlock the starter assembly from the flywheel gear. If the fan belt is turning around, the starter can no longer be stuck, so try it again."

Thanks John Muir and his Idiot's Guide!!
