    Starter problem

    Bought a blown up ski 05 rxt. Starter case was damaged and broke. So I swapped the guts into a starter that was bad but had good case. Try to start the ski and starter just spins. Im not sure if its not spinning fast enough to throw the bendix out or what.

    Question is: When I reach into PTO hole where starter goes. Should I be able to spin the bendix gear by hand or no? Im not sure if my starter is bad or bendix is bad.

    Starter problem

    Yes if you can feel the gear it should turn. How does the starter sound? Can you hear that its slow or sound fine? Hows the battery voltage?

    You say it was blown up was it reassembled properly?

    Engine is totally brand new. I ripped engine out to inspect. The starter is shot. Gatta find one on ebay, since I cant post on classifieds here yet.

    I swapped some parts around again between old starter and this one. It spins fast now but its shot, makes all types of noises.

    The bendix shoots out a gear when spun by the starter, once starter stops spinning the gear retracts back to the Bendix.
