The starter plugs into a small gear that spins the starter gear using a thin chain. On the side of the starter gear is a smooth surface. If the smooth surface becomes rough or chattered the one -way clutch will not grab hold of it and spin the motor. You will need to open the motor and replace the starter gear and possibly the one-way clutch. Then your bike will turn over again.

Starter on 2004 harley spins but rarely engages to turn engine over


The Bendix on the starter is bad. This is what shoves the starter gear out to engage the flywheel to start the engine and when you let go of the starter button it springs the starter gear back out of the way. Time to remove the starter and rebuild it.

Hey Kenton Plett,


Directed from another answer:


You have a bad starter bendix. It is a one way clutch wit a gear on it that moves on the starter armature to engage the flywheel. It is sliding over and engaging the flywheel the way it is supposed to, except, under load it is slipping. Since it is bad you will need to replace it. If it comes off with the starter it should be easy. If it is inside the engine, you may have to pull the engine to take off the cover and replace it.


Good Luck

05 grand cherokee wont start .full power lights dont dim when cranking then it starts like nothings wrong. i tried jump starting it then i climbed under it and hit the starter and it started


If the starter motor spins at high speed, but doesn't turn the engine until you whack it, the starter gear is not engaging the flywheel. Probably the engagement fork or the starter gear is worn out or sticky, or the solenoid isn't pushing it far enough.

I have a 1998 f-150 4.2l v-6 tryed to start it today it turned over and did not catch. turned key to try again it bumped the starter but would not turn the engine over. I tryed jumping it but I knew I had...


When you say 'it bumped the starter but did not turn the engine over' and 'it bangs the starter' it sounds like you mean it hits the flywheel and will not turn the engine. If it engages and does not turn the motor you need to try to manually turn both directions. Do not have the key in the ignition. If it won't turn you may have a froze up motor.
If you mean the starter spins freely but won't engage the engine - than you need a new starter. Let us know what you find out.
