Thank you for your question on the engagement of the starter to turn the engine over.

I would try to spray some lubricant into the starter drag link in front of the starter pulley to see if it is just seized from non-use.

If that does not fix the problem then I would take the starter apart to see if there is a worn out part.

This is a pretty old unit and if you find out that some part needs to be replaced I will give you a link to the parts list below.

I hope this will help.
