Cant figure out my hi torque starter problem.
« on: July 30, 2018, 12:39:22 PM »
So been having issues with this high torque starter some times engaging and some times just spinning the starter gear. Pulled the tin work off today to see if i could check ring gear to starter gear spacing but doesnt look to be possible but just eye balling it i believe its spaced right.

So turning the key when its not engaging the flywheel and just spinning its tearing off peices/corner of the flywheel gear. But its just random. 3 times it might work and 1 time it might rip teeth peices off. Even if its in the same spot on the fly wheel sometimes its good and sometime its destorying teeth.

What do you guys think?

I had same problem on a couple diff motors I put together I just took the ring gear off and put three flat washers between the flywheel and the ring gear and never had a issue after that

Do you have the part number for your starter?
Is it the automotive style or is it the black briggs starter?
