Both gears are removable, although, not easily. The ring gear on the clutch hub, is kind of attached to the hub. Not sure if you can get it separate, I don't know what year your bike is. Cost for a new one is $285. I'm sure that aftermarket stuff is cheaper, also the pinion gear is a small item on the end of the starter, cost is $94, also an aftermarket part is available. i have a web site here that will show you the schematics, you can shop the parts out else where. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 Utilimaster truck powered by a 5.7 Chevy 350. Last week it was turning over, but struggled to turn over. It started finally and I had no trouble cranking it for the rest of the day. The...


Sounds like you have a bad starter drive gear assembly (the gear on the starter that engages the flywheel gear). The drive gear has a one way clutch to prevent spinning the starter with the flywheel on engine start. When the clutch goes bad it does not spin the starter drive gear. If that's the case you can replace the starter drive rather than the whole starter, and you should also check the flywheel gear teeth to make sure none are broken or worn excessively.

The flywheel dose not stay on starter long enough to turn over motor. slips off and starter reves up and flywheel comes back and hits starter and makes a loud crack. had starter rebuilt cause a new one is...


the play in the shaft that your flywheel is causing your issue-you need to find the reason for that 1/2 inch wobble, although the most obvious would probably be a rear main bearing.or a bent (?) crankshaft...ask your rebuilder to double check the bendix gear operation on the starter, but it sounds like your problems are not the starter based on your description.

Starter makes grinding noise.... Can you help me? 1997 heritage softtail.


The first thing I'd check is the jackshaft and the ring gear on the outer clutch hub. Disconnect the battery. Drain and remove the outer primary. Inspect the ring gear and jackshaft looking for "roughness" on the teeth of the two gears of broken teeth. If you find any, you'll have to replace the parts.

If those parts look good, your problem is probably the "starter clutch" inside the starter. This is the one way bearing type device that allows your starter to turn the engine over but then freewheels the starter once the engine does start. This part can be replaced without having to purchase an entire starter but you'll have to disassemble the starter to replace it.

Good Luck

Check the ring gear on the clutch basket to make sure the teeth are all in good condition. Check the starter clutch and armature assembly and make sure that the teeth inside aren't chewed up.

Changing the starter


INSPECT OVERRUNNING CLUTCH 1. Slide the overrunning clutch along the shaft. Replace it if does not slide smoothly. 2. Rotate the overrunning clutch (A) both ways. Does it lock in one direction and rotate smoothly in reverse? If it does not lock in either direction or it locks in both directions, replace it. 299a793.gif 3. If the starter driver gear (B) is worn or damaged, replace the overrunning clutch assembly: the gear is not available separately. Check the condition of the flywheel or torque converter ring gear if the starter drive gear teeth are damaged.
CLEANING 1. Do not immerse parts in cleaning solvent. Immersing the yoke assembly and/or armature will damage the insulation. Wipe these parts with a cloth only. 2. Do not immerse the drive unit in cleaning solvent. The overrun clutch is pre-lubricated at the factory and solvent will wash lubrication from the clutch. 3. The drive unit may be cleaned with a brush moistened with cleaning solvent and wiped dry with a cloth. findme(''); findme(''); findme(''); 7d082d0.gif
