on my 8n, due to what seems to be the starter drive disengaging from the fly wheel when i go to start, i removed the starter for inspection.
everything appears to be ok.
so i want to just clean it up and reinstall.
what i want to know is, should i lubricate the drive or put it back dry?
i believe it is an old style drive.
thanks in advance.

Phil, Go with what Bruce said. I had mine apart when I lived in a warmer climate and put a thin coat of 40 wt oil on it. We live in a colder climate now and I had to take it apart in sub zero weather and get the oil off. That was less than fun but the snow did get plowed that day ! LOL They really like dry from my experience.

Dry. In fact, if it has any oil/grease on it, clean it off. Did you find the problem? Sometimes it's a worn spot on the ring gear, other times it is the bendix going bad. Now that you've got the starter out, you might want to consider installing the new clutch-type bendix.

thanks Coldiron and Bruce,
dry it shall be.
i did not see any obvious problem.
a little binding on outward travel and it was a bit grimy.
it is an old part and does seem like it has seen better days.
i am going to put it all back together.
i will consider purchasing and installing a new drive for the next time the starter has to come out..
