99 GSX Starter Spinning
I have a 99 GSX 951 Engine with a "free" spinning starter. The starter will not engage.... I pulled the starter and bench tested... seems ok. There is about 1/8" play in the shaft in and out (not up and down).
1. Is the 1/8" play normal? Or is the starter the main problem here?
2. If it is not the starter, Iis the next step to remove the ring gear in the mag housing by pulling the engine out?
3. If i put my finger in the hole where the start goes I can spin the gear freely?! should I be turning the pistons?
4. DO I have to pull the entire pump housing out to remove the engine or can i just unbolt the engine and slide off the shaft?
Thanks for your help!
