Would like to know how others have compressed the Bendix to install the pin. ACME Electric here in Seattle told me the following: Bendix needs to be in disengaged position. My new one is in engaged position. According to person at ACME need to spin Bendix to disengaged positon. Hold Bendix and use a high speed buffer.
They had a very old special tool to compress the Bendix to install the pin. Bendix on my starter is loose as I am able to compress the Bendix by hand and install the pin.

I always use a tapered punch in one side and start the pin in the other. No big deal.

Hobo,

Could you describe the tool you made? Special tool ACME Electric has is like a piece of round pipe cut length wise with a handle operated screw device to compress the Bendix.

What about using a roll pin in place of a solid pin? Would have to force it by the collar What I call a "hammer fit."

I recently saw on another post that you can also use a wire wheel on a grinder motor to spin the drive back to disengaged. But if this was shipped to you like that and you have time to send it back for a replacement, I would do that. Or just send it back and order one from this site to support the forum.

Jim,
I saw a tool on the internet for working on barrel type Bendix for starters.Ordered the tool from ebay. Hobo showed a tool he made for compressing barrel bendixes. I made a tool that works. Just wanted to see if I could make a tool. Have included a picture of the tool

Drives have solid pins. Would a roll pin be easier to use? It might go past the thin retaining collar then expand. ????

Jim,

I ordered a starter and Bendix from our host last year. Have had it in my garage on the island. Ordered starter and Bendix when present starter failed last year. When I got the starter out last year saw that the pin had fallen out.Made a pin. I now think the Bendix is weak as I was able to push the Bendix back and insert the pin. Didn't use the new starter and new bendix as I repaired the old one (last year ) before new starter and new Bendix arrived from our host. Bendix came loose a week ago. Just Ordered another starter and Bendix from our host. ACME electric here in Seattle has been in business since the 1940's. They have rebuilt many starters and generators for me as through the years my Wife and I have collected tractors. Mainly ones with three points. Tool ACME electric has for compressing the Bendix is a very old tool , wish I had one. Technician told me starter needed to be in engaged position. It is in closed position. When I go back to the San Juans want to have a starter to put on the tractor. Having a starter with a loose Bendix is a concern . do not want the Bendix to come loose and tear up the flywneel

Tried to spin the Bendix to engaged position with wire wheel on my grinder. Didn't work as my grinder is probably not powerful enough . Any information you know regarding replacing the pin would be appreciated.
