Starter not grounded bc of Mystery Stuff...
After having my ski not start and narrowing it down to the starter, I ripped into my ski today to find that the starter works fine out of the ski. Upon closer inspection the starter was not grounded bc of some crap that dripped between the starter motor and the engine block. You can see it in the pics. I have no idea where its coming from, the top of the engine is clean, the carbs are clean with no trace of this stuff, and its only located in this one area. Im stumped

Loose bolts caused aluminum dust from parts rubbing together.

Look in bolt holes too, threads are almost stripped...

Recoil or Helicoil these holes before you put the starter back in. Just cleaning them out, will result in more problems.
