Remove the timing belt covers and check the condition of the belts. Then carefully check the timing of the cams. Take the belts off and toss them. Replace with new. If one or both of the cams are out of time the resistance you feel may be a piston hitting a valve held open by a cam.

Getting oil or solvent all around a cylinder is difficult. A length of tubing on a spray can might help. Try piercing radial holes in the tubing and plugging the end so the spray goes to the cylinder walls rather than straight out the end of the tube.

I would not pull the heads unless there is some definite indication of a failed head gasket. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Most starter issues are cured by a thorough cleaning and replacement of the brushes. Clean, corrosion free wiring connections are vital to good starter and charging system performance.

Check the three yellow wires from the stator. If the connector hasn't been replaced do that with solder and shrink tubing. If it's already been done, redo it with solder and shrink tubing.

Good luck,

I should not have posted the IP info, I have deleted all references to location, and this is the end of that story. No comments on location.

this has caused toolbox007 a lot of grief..... he was on a company system that cannot be identified, so this is the end of the location issue.

I emailed him an apology and hopes he comes back.
