    RX DI starter problem

    Bought a new starter for the ski. It fits in there but it will just spin. I stuck my hand in the hole and I feel the bendix spin. What could be the problem?

    little more info will help.


    which hole are you trying to lose a finger in?..on a DI I don't believe there is a hole that give access to the bendix..are you sticking a finger in the CPS mount?

    if the flywheel is spinning and the engine isn't, either the crank is broken or the main flywheel bolt has come loose and the key has sheared off.

    take out the plugs and see what happens ( make sure you ground the plug caps)

    I'm sticking my finger in the starter slot. Crank is good, it's just the starter is spinning not hooking to anything

    Sounds like a chewed up or rusty and stuck bendix. You'll need to support the engine and pull the front cover to inspect.
