    virage bendix help please

    hey folks,
    i have a 2002 virage tx 1200.
    had the starter nosecone break off when replacing starter last year.
    i finally grinded out the last bit and started reassembly. i kept the engine in and took off the front flywheel cover and moved anything movable out of the way while working on it.
    my problem is the bendix(starter gear) is sticking too far out to allow the cover to go back on. it is kind of just flopping around.
    i researched posts and pictures and cannot figure out is there a notch the back end(closest to rear of ski) sits in? any tricks or anything?
    i have the service manual, but that assumes the flywheel and magnetto are out and also just says install gear.
    Also, the starter is not pushed in all the way yet, so i know iam not hitting that.
    thanks.
    johnny

    Yes.....and move it around a little to make sure the bendix drive gear engages into the starter drive gear......they need to mesh or it can hang out a little.

    so with mirror and flashlight in hand, i check all is clean in there and blow out any metal shavings from the grinding, and i find a washer.using a magnet, i pull it out. now because of the way it was in there, i believe it goes on the rear shaft(closest to starter motor). the service manual only says keep track of any parts when taking off cover and does not say what or where parts go. is this the only washer? the front of the bendix gear has a spring and collar, is that all?

    No, there should be TWO thrust washers. One on each end of the bendix shaft.... They're both the same.

    what does a thrust washer look like? is it just a regular washer? again the service manual exploded parts assembly does not show this ( i think). thanks crazya
