Hi Oily
The engine does turn with a spanner.
It started with the clicking noise when I tried to start the car.
I had problems of it stalling at low revs.
I have had the starter off and checked the solinoid on the battery.
The solinoid was operating.
Put a volt meter ( beep set Ohms) across the connection between the solinoid and the starter motor and then connected the solinoid to the battery.
The solinoid worked and I heard the beep which i assumed the connection between the solinoid wan the starter motor was made.
I then tried a direct connection from the battery to the solinoid, by passing the ignition switch.
There was clicking. Is the solinoid working??/. The engine never turned.
