    SLT 780 Starter Assembly Problem, please help

    So I have a SLT 780 that the starter spins, and the internal gear spins freely too. The motor also rolls over freely, however the starter does not engage the flywheel. How does the internals near the flywheel work and what could be the problem??? Thanks.

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    How do you know the internal gear (bendix) spins freely?

    The starter engages the bendix. The bendix moves out due to centrifugal force and engages the flywheel.

    Sound to me like your bendix is stuck.

    With the starter out, I can feel inside the opening and the bendix spins very freely. That's as much as I can tell.

    The bendix has a centrifugal activated gear that engages and retracts depending on the starter. There's a chance yours isn't engaging. It will still spin freely.

    You're going to have to make sure the starter IS working properly. And if so, then the stator cover must come off to inspect the bendix.
