1974 Cranking problem

by John
(South Carolina)

When I attempt to crank the engine with the key from the driver's seat, the engine turns over but the starter chatters as if I had a low battery. The chatter is the pinion engaging then disengaging rather than solenoid or low battery.


I put it up on stands, hooked a remote start switch to the S terminal and battery and it cranks like a champ.

New Starter, new battery. It's something else.

Ideas?
