Thread: Starter bendix

  1. #1

    Starter bendix

    How does one tell if the bendix is good or not?
    Is there a way to test it?
    I don't want to go through again what it took to get the darn thing out.

    Bendix

    Check which teeth?? Starter, or bendix?
    The teeth on the starter look fine, how do I check the teeth on the bendix without pulling the flywheel cover?

    You can't...but if the starter turns and the engine isn't turning over chances are you have a problem with the bendix.

    I fixed the problem with the starter

    Wasn't the starter, and it wasn't the bendix. It was a sheared woodruff key on the flywheel shaft.

    Weird..never seen those shear before. Usually the flywheel is on there so tight that I didn't think the woodruff key matter much except for alinging it for installation. GLad you fixed it.
