Hello to all,

I purchased a 89 js550 yesterday. I was told it just needed a new battery and it will run. So I purchased a new battery and fully charged it and nothing. I am very mechanical and took apart the top end and carb. Both are fine. It is trying to start. I have a spark, compression, new fully charged battery, and brand new fuel. Fuel is making it into the engine. Only thing I see suspicious is dry plugs. When i first go to start it turns over fast and gets slower and slower until it stops turning over and all that i hear is clicking at the starter. Kinda like the battery is dead. But then I come back an hour later and it turns over fast again but slowly stops. I have tried carb cleaner in the top end and carb. The battery is fully connected. Whats up? I suspect I need a new starter. It turns over until it just clicks. What do you think?
