Hi hows it going. I have a 71 914-4 that I bought from a neighbor, and when I bought the car it did not run. I tried to get it started but to no avail. As I cranked it it kind of sounded like it had a turned bearing or something so I decided to tear it down and rebuiild it. I put a web cam and big bore pistons ect. I finally put the engine back in the car and hooked everything up and when I turned the key the started just clicks. It is the starter not the solenoid the clicks. To my knowledge I hooked all of the wires up as I took them off. Before I took the engine out the car would crank but just slowly, I also replaced the starter and it still cranked slowly. I could turn the motor with my hand via the flywheel before I put it in. Any help would be greatly appreciatedthanks,Matt
