318 Onan Start Problem

Ed When I turn the key, on a new battery, the solenoid spins but the starter does not engage...at least that what it sounds like. Does this make since for this Onan engine? How do I get to the solenoid/starter? Any thoughts on a quick fix? Hammer? Thanks for any help.
Dave Ed - The solenoid cannot spin, it is only a switch. If you are hearing spinning, it's the starter, and it's not extending to engage the flywheel. To access the starter, the engine has to be pulled. Some 318s have the solenoid mounted to the starter, some have it external to the starter. - Dave
Ed Dave...Thanks for the info. I suppose pulling the engine is a major effort/expense. Guess it's time to dig out the tools!
