I've had my RC for a few years now, and the starter has never engaged the flywheel. The previous owner lives about 6 miles away and tells me he replaced the starter bendix himself with no change.
I'm getting tired of hand cranking it and would like to fix this.
I have checked the ring gear on the flywheel and it looks good.
I have also tried turning the flywheel about 1/8 turn to see if it might have a bad spot, but that didn't help either.
My question is, will a WC, WD or WD45 starter work, or is the RC starter unique?
Anyone have any experience with the RC starter/ring gear or know something I ought to but don't?
Thanks in advance,
