Does anyone know the purpose of this little spring under the counterweight of the Bendix gear? (inside black circle)

Its called an Anti Drift Pin. It helps keep the gear all the way retracted when you are not using the starter. Something I learned from this forum a couple of years ago.

Good answer. Makes sense. I should have looked for a previous post. Thanks John, Mark, and Ron. I stay awake nights thinking about these things.
