The gear that the starter clutch grabs hold of has a smooth collar on the side of it that the clutch grabs a hold of. It has to be smooth (round) , not chattered , if you did not replace the gear also that is why it will not grab.

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.

How do you tell if the starter has gone out


starter failure is indicated by several actions
1--- very slow in turning the engine ( something like a flat battery)---bushes shot and armature poling on shoes-- repairable
2--- clicking solenoid on starter but not spinning motor--- faulty solenoid contact points not completing power circuit--- solenoid replacement
3--starter spins fine on one start but will do nothing on restart or will restart if the engine is turned a fraction by hand-- dry joints in commutator bar in armature starter stops spinning on start and the faulty bar is under a brush thereby not making a circuit on restart--- repairable
4--starter shows signs of burning/ heat on the outside -- starter held in engagement with the fly wheel and burnt out the wiring
5--- starter spins and engages the ring gear but doesn't move the crank--- over run clutch on pinion of starter is failed --- replaceable
if the starter is what is known as a stepped starter ( body of the starter is not in direct line with the pinion nut works through an idler gear) there could be failures in the drive of that idler gear
fortunately most starters will last the life of the motor if used correctly ( not winding over until the battery is flat)
if the engine is held in good tune then a starter will operate for as little as 15 seconds to start an engine and most starter problems faults can be traced to
failed cells in battery --- have a load test done
dirty battery posts and terminals-- should be shiny clean and tight
bad ground wire point on engine for battery lead
faulty starter relays
problem ignition switches

KTM 530 2009 starter spins but motor will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

Starter spins but doesn't turn over motor is there a keyway on one of the gears that could be broke and how do I get at it?


Typically there is a piece called a one way clutch. It is bolted to the back of the flywheel. In this case the one way clutch is not grabbing the large starter gear. You will have to remove the engine side cover, pull off the flywheel, and replace the one way clutch and starter gear. Then, when the starter motor is spinning , the clutch will grab the starter gear, the motor will turn over, and hopefully start.

My 2002 yamaha vstar 1100 classic started and ran fine. now the starter just spins. it wont turn the engine over to start it. i already changed the battery. what could be the problem?


The one way clutch inside the motor is slipping. On the back side flywheel is a one way clutch that grabs the starter gear when the starter motor spins. It is designed to let go of the gear once the motor fires up. If the mating surface of the one way clutch and the starter gear becomes rough or chattered, it will no longer grab and turn the motor over. To repair this you will have to take off the crankcase cover and pull off the fly wheel to replace the one way clutch and the starter gear.

My 92 saab 9000 wont start. it makes a spinning sound sort of like a hairdryer. the battery is fine and i get the oil changed every 3000 miles and all the other fluids regularly checked. so what could it...


Either the timing belt/chain/gears has failed, which can really change the sound of cranking, but the engine visibly goes around.

If the engine does not turn (as it sounds is the case with your car), but the starter spins fast enough to be described as sounding like a hairdryer, then the starter drive is bad and the starter will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

The starter drive is turned by the starter motor, and the drive in turn turns the gear that engages the flywheel of the engine. The part that turns that gear will not let the starter motor be pushed by the engine — it has a one-way, overrunning clutch in it. If the engine got a chance to spin the starter, the starer would simply explode. It is maybe 10 or 15 to one between the engine. One good start using the gas pedal would spin the starter like 15 to 25 thousand RPM...

If that overrunning clutch fails the starter motor cannot spin the gear that turns the engine.
