strange sound on start up

Just got my Scooby back from getting its wheels refurbed, impact motors in brighouse 400 notes lovely job, but when I took it down when I started it there was a noise like the starter motor was was turning over but not connecting to the engine, like a belt was slipping (has it got a belt connecting it?) I stopped turning the key then tried again and no problems so I thought nothing of it really but when I picked it up today and turned it over the same thing happened again. So I will be getting my head under the bonnet this weekend but before I do I thought I would ask if anyonehas herd of this issue and had any ideas. The wheels are awesome buy the was but makethe rest of the car scream out for some more work.
Thanks to any help
Steven

Don't think so because the engine does not seem to catch at all just spin, but I will be checking that now so thanks.

Re: strange sound on start up

sounds more like the started not "flicking" properly...simple removal,undo 2 bolts n it's out,just check it over and see if the spring is gummed up or the teeth are worn..hth
