Question about Cars & Trucks
Some outboards use a spiral gear on starter bendix to engauge the flywheel , this needs to move freely on starter shaft (moves up to engage flywheel) now if say rust happens on this shaft (and it does lots!!) then this gear can not move up to engauge wheel and shaft just spins !! me id try a few squirts of oil right down in there !!

SOURCE: bendix wont engage flywheel
if its clicking then the solenoid is going. try doing a starter draw test. hook a meter to the battery on dc volts. attempt to star. if voltage drops below 9 volts the its the starter. if it doesnt move much at all then its the solenoid. but i think its the starter cause the solenoid is clicking

Hello, I would make sure that your car is not one of those half year cars becuase two differn't starters may be offered for the same year of car. Also, I would check and see if your battery has enough CCA's to power your system. The only other thing is to turn your crankshaft with a breaker bar to turn your flywheel to possibly get a fresh area of teeth on it. If none of this fails it's as simple as just replacing the flywheel. If you did a bench test on the starter and the bendix engaged that is good. Buying parts from an Auto parts store does not gurantee the part is good and that the bendix engages the full distance to turn the flywheel. I would try to find a mechanic who rebuilds starters to make sure that the bendix is engaging fully. I hope this helps you!

SOURCE: starters grinding
any model made after the 6 month is the next year model ( look inside your driver side door ) you should have the sticker that has your date on it,and try a 97 starter, it fits and lines up, ( and its a bigger starter )hope that helps you out

If you turned the flywheel with a screwdriver and the bendix engaged the flywheel, then it sounds like it could be the flywheel. There may be "teeth" missing on the flywheel, causing the bendix not to grab onto the flywheel. Have the flywheel checked. If there are "teeth" missing, then replace the flywheel. I experienced the same problem with my Nissan.
