    Jerry, Mark, Nils or Other Guru

    I am having all kinds of trouble getting the PTO housing to mate with the engine housing. I can get the starter into the hole in the PTO and the oil pump rotor into the slot in the engine housing. But there is still about a 1/8 inch gap that I cannot get rid of. Any tips?

    Plus, I noticed that I appear to be missing a washer on the starter. I have a flat metal washer and two spring washers against that sliding ring. The shop manual shows an additional flange washer. This washer was NOT on there when I removed the PTO cover. I was careful when pulling the PTO cover off because Mark warned me about these washers. Here is a pic from the manual and the washer I am missing:

    Frank, all i had was two spring washers and a flat washer on mine.

    Like i told you on the phone yesterday, i had the same issue when reinstalling my PTO housing. My problem was the big gear that the starter drives wasn't seated properly. I am certain this is your problem. Wish i would have taken a pic when i had it apart.

    Jerry, the starter appears to be properly seated (pushed back with gear teeth engaged). I can turn the crank with the drive shaft and the starter turns as well.

    Is the manual just wrong about that flange washer?

    Yeah, I know what is wrong now. The starter gear should not be engaged with the flywheel right now. Mine is, so I need to shove it back even further. But that washer is a mystery. Without it, the bendix can move and result in the gears engaging while the ski is in operation. I think mine was left off from manufacture. I think this because I KNOW it didn't fall off when I removed the PTO cover. Secondly, the tips of the starter teeth are worn like it has been coming into contact with the flywheel. Jerry, were the tips of your starter gear worn?

    Looks like you have to buy an entire starter to get that washer! The parts list shows the flat washer and the spring washers, but doesn't show the flange washer as a separate piece.

    I'm kind of leaning toward not worrying about it. But it has me spooked a little.
