Re: Starter and flywheel gears clashed when starting 1940 160

For whatever reason, starter pinion did not engage flywheel ring gear teeth. Could be weak solenoid. Could be there was already worn gear teeth on flywheel or starter pinion or both. I've changed a lot of ring gears over the past 48 years, and, Unfortunately, you're going to buy parts. Have that starter rebuilt or at least replace the pinion and solenoid, and load test battery and check electrical connections. PB
