Re: Starter and flywheel gears clashed when starting 1940 160

Another possibility:
The starters spin throws the gear down the pinion axle to engage the flywheel.
If there is dirt and lack of lube on the bendix axle the gear will not move all the way down and cause gear clash. (the 1st 84 years is always the hardest!)
When you get the starter rebuilt this area will be addressed too so it will not happen again.
Mine had that issue before rebuild, along with a host of other things, what is it one guy said, more Issues than Sports Illustrated!
