Well, starter stopped engaging, first thought was bendix spring as most commonly happens. Note this time.

And how do I get this rascal off ??

Never seen a tool for this one ,but have an idea.

So...fix it. Put the gear back on the counterweight and tack weld or braze several spots. Pull the flange/tang together and braze, weld. Common failures. If you don't want it...I'll take.

Replacing the fractured drive collar is easy, get new repro from vendors, pry off old one, slip on new. Then press the center cut down into the groove, but not tight, you want the collar to turn easy.




You can replace or repair that gear as John posted, remove the nose bearing collar to get off the gear.

George,

With sympathy for your problem...and might you have any advice for others?

Any thoughts as to the cause?

12 Volt battery?

Attempting a start with spark advanced too far?

Timer out of adjustment?

Any other cause comes to mind? - Or just fatigued metal?

Thanks for your ideas.

Dave
