Hello peeps... I'm back with the 86 Fox...
It's a V6 Essex Fox and as the title says it wont crank at all...
I've just purchased a battery since purchasing the vehicle & the lights, wipers, blinkers, etc work, but when I try cranking the car I hear what I would assume is the starter or tbh what a race car fuel pump would sound like and that's all no clicks or cranking any troubleshooting tips?

Also note I've gutted the dash and everything is disconnected accept for the speedo I doubt this affects starting even the slightest, but just felt like i'd inform you'll..

Any troubleshooting tips... Such as checking if the engine may be locked(Instructions) or The solenoid... Idk

See if your starter switch is sending power to the solenoid on the fender apron under the hood.
Why is the dash gutted?
Can you jump the solenoid with a screwdriver?

Cause racecar... XD Seriously though i'm gutting the car because I'm going to drift it & prob ebay turbo it if I don't swap in a v8...
Also would I need a voltage meter to check? or is there a shortcut?
