    so i get a call from my brother in law the other morning and asked if i could run to his shop and look at his 550. he let someone borrow it and from what the guy told him he went to start the truck and it started and when he let go of the key the starter was still spinning. I crawled under the truck and smacked the starter a few times with a hammer and it seemed to still be locked up. They disconnected the battery and when you touched the terminal to the post it will try to start with the key off. I don't know if the solenoid is gone or what. any help will be appreciated
