out of no where my starter quit engaging the flywheel. the teeth on the flywheel are worn from the starter not engaging correctly. i guess i dont have it shimmed right. when i engaged the starter gear by hand it looked like it fit just fine. has anyone else had this problem. also how much of the starter gear is suppose to engage the flywheel. it seems like it is barely engaging it and once the teeth got worn it just stopped completly. maybe i have flywheel on backwards but if its on the other way it sits right on the starter gear. i am using a 3hp racing starter not a stock one.
