What? Give me something that makes sense. Is it sumping all the time, when you try start it,does it start? Look punctuation helps.

it does turn over but not all the time with the button .it only turns over 1 or 2 times then make a loud noise like its not engageing in the teeth right . But it i cross jump it on the solenoid it turns over a couple times then doez the same thing.But it does not start!

Spins over once or twice then makes a noise and stops cranking sounds like a bad bendix. Has it ever run? How long have you had the shovelhead?

I would get the battery load tested at your local auto parts store.

did you check to see if the lower end is over full w/ oil??? bad ball seat or weak spring can let oil fill lower end after sitting a long time... drain out bottom end then try to start. if it starts and runs it will sump oil to correct level but you will need to re-seat the ball bearing and put a new spring and ball in... this is a common problem [bottom end filling w/ oil and or gas] if the ball isnt seating caus of a weak spring or grit / dirt in oil not letting the ball seat properly . I had my lower end so full one time I couldnt kick it at all; nor would the elec. starter turn the motor over!!! I reseated the ball replaced spring and ball and presto back in action.... just something it might be jus sayin
