    I just put a new battery in my Wright Stander, when I go to start it the starter stays in the start postion. What can I do to correct this? Thanks, Tyler.

    It may just be dry up there. Lube it up a bit. Try to move it by hand after lubing it to loosen it.

    are you saying the key is sticking, or the starter itself?

    Key-ya, lube it up or replace the mechanism. should be a cheap fix.

    starter-no help here.

    The starter itself was sticking, it would continue to spin after I turned the ignition off and removed the key. I didn't do anything to it other than just let it sit and it works fine now. Thanks for the replies, Tyler

    Probably your starter clutch is getting old or flaky. The starter clutch and spring assembly is cheap (less than $10 in most cases) and is an easy fix.
