    How does the 4-tec bendix drive work?

    I'm pretty sure my bendix drive is bad. The starter will crank the motor for just a moment then disengage (while continuously spinning. I pulled the PTO housing and ring gear to get to the bendix. I fired the starter and the bendix pops out, but as soon as the starter get to full speed it pulls back in.

    Can anyone tell me if this bendix is the latching type that retracts only when it's backdriven by the ring gear? If that's the case, it's busted. If not, I don't know what is wrong. None of the sprockets are excessively worn, so Ican't see a reason why it would fail to engage w/ the ring gear.

    Any thoughts?
