RC Starter

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,

If I remember correctly from reading a lot about the different AC models, AC used the B & C engine in the RC, so I would think that the starter/flywheel combo would be the same. Is it possible that the starter had been changed out sometime in it's life with a wrong replacement even before the last owner had it? Maybe that's why it doesn't engage. (?) Just a thought.........

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
