    Any ideas? It is not air locked either. Not a very cool morning either. The batteries seem to be in good shape. I have it plugged in right now and will put a battery charger on it if need be. I don't want to burn the starter out though.

    What year If it's a newer one it's most likely the cam positioning switch in front of the engine held by a 10mm bolt.Some times you can get them cheaper at an International dealer
