Wish it was just the gear - it threw the whole damn lot off the shaft, jammed the pinion on the ring gear and after the third rebuild sent the circlip into orbit - I never found the washers and wonder if they were ever fitted :-(

Trying to get the starter motor off is a nightmare - a torx40 bit needed - on a double 1/4 drive extension :-(... would have helped if I hadn't used lock n seal when I rebuilt it all.  With all the plastic splash guarding and safety mesh it took an hour just to get the starter off the first time.  Now parked up waiting spares - I had hoped to fit the later roll pin system as I have lost a couple of pinions on lawnmowers but as you say Steve, I don't think they can be swapped - the devil you know ......

I made a fatal mistake - I finished the skirt repairs today and told Gill that she was at last ready for sea trials - the damn thing heard me ..... next engine start and this happens.

I don't think they are as the end of the shaft is different. If its the small plastic gear they are cheap as can be...

Anyone know if the B&S clip and roll pin starter assys are interchangeable ?

I had the Vanguard starter bendix fall apart today - with the craft parked blocking an access - I am pleased to say that you can rope start a 24 bhp v twin by wrapping a strap round the cooling fan and pulling like ^^&*((*&&^*((  :-)

This IS a good way to construct things. Discuss.
P.S. My craft talks to me in depariging tones ALSO,,, so THIS clip is comforting to realise it isn't JUST ME. (so I am not going mad after all. )

A useful site to look at before you through the b-----y thing away.
9 Times out of 10 if a bottle jack does not work it is the o rings on the small piston you are pumping with the handle.

Another lesson learnt from bitter experience.
