Take off the plug wires and try, to see if there is a 'backfire' against the starter cranking.If not, it is likely in the starter.
Well, duh. Why didn't I think of that? It cranks the same, so that takes ignition out of the loop. Do you mean that I might have to (cough cough) spend some money? Or is it fixable?
Spend money? What kind of talk is that?
Over the last 6 months or so, it's becoming hard to crank. The solenoid goes home immediately, but the starter sometimes goes as long as a half second before it cranks the engine.
Here is a careful question. When you hit the button you can hear the solenoid go home. Does the starter seem to crank instantly but very poorly?
If it is the former symptom, then yes I would concur it is like an ignition not returning to idle advance.
Double check the main battery ground is connected and the starting current is not getting back to the battery by soma alternate route.I know of a couple of VIIs where the ground had come disconnecter and the circuit was completed by the small black wire from the Voltage regulator, this became red hot and fused to other wires in the loom.
I'm out of "Airspeed, Altitude, and Ideas." What am I missing?

I have seen two instances where worn bushes in the rotating assembly have allowed the rotor to contact the stator and use a bunch of the juice intended for the starting......Once on a high compression drag motor and once on a CX400 Honda. I rebushed the Honda one for the owner and it transformed it.
Well, *now* you tell me after I spent 60 some bucks. <snapping suspenders> I *have* bearing stock, and could have done that for free. I'll put a tag on it saying "needs rebushed." Thanks..
