1942 Lincoln starter update


Recommended Posts

Took starter out and it appears to be fairly recent age. I could not find anything wrong or broken on the Bendix. However, it was not lubricated and could have possibly gotten stuck in the non-engaged position.  I can turn it in and out towards and away with some resistance. Flywheel teeth look great as so the Bendix teeth. 


Starter turns fast and smooth otherwise. I will take to a local shop on Monday to inspect and any further testing.  Could it be that it only needs a small amount of grease lube on the shaft where the gear spins towards and away from the flywheel ring gear?  Sometimes grease can be a bad idea gunking it up.
