    Starter broke off inside of motor. How do i remove the stuck piece?

    Well i noticed that my ski stop starting and the SBT ht starter broke off inside the motor. The cylinder that goes around the gear is the part that is stuck. Does anyone know how to remove the stuck part?

    Sounds like you need to remove the front cover from the engine.

    Thanks I pulled the motor and took the front cover off. I got the remaining part of the starter off. BUT i noticed that the gear that the starter hooks up to is moving around? Is is suppose to move backwards and forwards and how do i know if it is lined up properly before I reassemble.

    That's a one way gear, it free spins one way and grabs the other way to crank the engine.

    Was that the only way to get it out of there? This just happened to me and I'm hoping I can get that piece out without pulling the motor.

    The flywheel has to come off to replace the starter clutch. You might be able to do it without removing the engine. Which model is it?

    The shaft of the bendix fits in a bore in the engine case, and a bore in the cover, and I believe there should be a spring that goes in the bore on the cover. Put some marine grease on the bendix shaft ends, and a light coating on the starters orings, and in the bore to help installation, and future removal.
