The starter doesn't turn the motor over very fast. Is this characteristic of normal operation?
I am working with orginal equipment in a restoration effort for a 37 Chevy sedan. Even though the starter has supposedly been overhaul. This starter doesn't turn the moter hardly fast enough to start the engine.

First check connections, if hot its not getting good contact.Are the wires getting hot? Battery in good shape? Was the starter rewound for 12 volt or is still 6 volt. If still 6 volt try 12 volt battery and see if that makes it turn faster.
