The starter motor will not engage


Hi, Paul the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Starter on 83 fxrt spins but wont engage


Check all your connections to starter and battery. If all connections are tight and the starter doesn't engage, it's time for a new starter.

What ever it is it sounds like the starter Bendix isn't engaging. Need to know if it is engaged by a solenoid or centrifugally engaged.

Put in new starter it just spins doesnt engage motor


The starter engages with the starter clutch, normaly when the starter spins and doesnt engage, it is because the clutch bearings within the clutch have worn the machined surfaces causing the clutch to stick and not engage when the starter is pressed

85 bmw starter does not engage it goes zing


probably find that the dog clutch on the end of the starter has given up the ghost,failing that,bmws are critical on the grade of oil used and if you have used a mineral rather than synthetic oil the dog clutch will be gummed up with deposits,sometimes a hot engine flush and new oil(synthetic)will fix it,hope this helps

Can you hear it spin or not? If it is spinning, the starter clutch gears are out. If you cannot, make sure there is power getting to it when the button is pressed. If so, you need a starter, if not, you need to trouble shoot the electrical system.
