Need some help in diagnosing the issue with my Benfix. Star suddenly did not engaging anymore. Starter is still spinning. Added some pictures after opening the cover. Seems the bendix Gear did not return.

I assume you checked to see if the Bendix spring is broken. Brad.

If the starter shaft key is sheared or missing, the starter will spin with no Bendix engagement.

Don't ask me how I know... :-)
