Hey guys, she is a 1973 2002, and the starter is from a 1983 320i 5-speed.
The beggining of the story is, about a year ago i went to start the 02 and all i heard was a tick. Rolled her down the hill, pop no problem.
So i had a friend rebuild the starter, im afraid all he did was clean it up and ever since it was very slow turning, but would eventually fire. Now the 2002 is not driven to much, maybe a couple thousand miles a year or more. Then a few months later it would not hot start which i was told could also be the starter.
So today i went ahead and replaced the starter with a 320i Unit. The differences i notice between the 2 is that on the 320i There are 2 tabs for the solinoid connecter and there is only 1 connector (the 02 only had 1 tab)
When i was tightening everything up, i accidently connected the power wire to the negative and when i was connecting the battery back up, i got a few sparks and the starter started to run. I quickly pulled the battery cable back off and switched the power wire to positive on the starter.
Now i got into the car and nothing, no tick, no click nothing.
Did i miss something or what did i do wrong?
