Sequence for starter washers

Hello. I recently rebuilt a starter for my 2004 Yamaha Kodiak ATV. After I reinstalled the starter in my Quad, it still would not start. Power goes to the selinoid but the Starter just won't engage. I was told that the washers must be placed back onto the starter (after rebuild) in a certain sequence or the starter won't work. I have tried in vain to locate any info on what the sequence of the starter washers are. Since there are five washers, (some metal and some non-metal) that makes for a lot of combinations.

Sorry about the "products category" below but I could not find ATV

Could you help?

Thanks AL

1996 yamaha kodiak 400 ATV starter spins but will not engage the engine, what is the problem?

The starter Bendix gear must be stuck in the disengage position, and is not engaging the flywheel. Try hitting the starter with a rubber mallet or with a piece of wood and a hammer. You may be able to loosen the gear by spraying some WD40 or the like into the gear. You probably should take the starter off to clean /lube the gear. If all fails, you're looking at a new starter.
