Starting Problem

Hello I am new to this site, thought if anybody could help me this site could.

Just bought an 1995 Ford F250 7.3L powerstroke turbo diesel with an 5 speed Manual transmission. Problem I am having is when I start the truck .I push in the clutch in neutral then turn the key, and it has a clicking sound on the passenger side under the hood, it's when the key is turned and you can push in and out the clutch to make that noise. Had a small repair shop look at the starter, they replace the solenoid on the starter. Replaced the solenoid on the right inside fender. Had advanced auto check the alternator, and batteries and there fine. So I am stumped and frustrated trying to figure this out. The truck can be pull started and runs great.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

When you had advance check the batteries did they check them in the truck? If so did the disconnect them before checking them? If they are still connected in the truck it can give a false reading of being ok.

If the solenoids were replaced and the batteries and alt. tested, the only thing I can think of is a bad set of cables. Do you know if they disconnected the batteries to test them properly?

Have you tried jumping the solenoid to see if it will start that way?

Also I just noticed when you just turn the key to accessories the ABS light comes on for a sec, at this same time when you look at the battery voltage gauge it go shooting to the middle of the gauge where the M in normal. Then when the ABS light goes out, the gauge goes down the N in normal.

When you jump the solenoid you should get something. The bendix maybe stuck in the flywheel and the engine should turn over. Or the bendix isn't engaging and you should here it spinning. Maybe a cable or a bad starter.
