Got it fixed this afternoon...

Thanks for the help...

I looked at that as a problem but the rotor was well secured. So the problem was the starter was spinning backwards! There is a small o-ring that holds the positive post off the case of the starter. I assume the pressure from the positive starter wire squeezed the o-ring until the positive side touched the case making it run in reverse. Trip to the hardware store and .29 cent o-ring and it started like a champ.

what a F-in nightmare...
