Had problems starting my machine lately which has been very rare so had a close inspection.

Found very small bits of silver metal around the engine. After close inspection found the starter motor cog has been wearing the sprocket out. There is about one third missing on the sprockets now!!!!!

Never taken this side apart yet - so I guess I need a new sprocket first. Not sure about the starter motor, because I can't see it clearly. Then replace it by attacking it from the prop end.

I have just changed the back plate so I am guessing that it was never lined up when I bolted on the starter motor!!

1. Do you think I'm right?

2. Is it straight forward to replace the sprocket (anyone got a spare?)?

3. How do you make sure it is lined up with the new one?

4. HELP

I'm not mechanic and don't want to cause any more damage, which I think I cause here.............

Cheers guys.

1. Do you think I'm right? (some are like this from new)

2. Is it straightforward to replace the sprocket (anyone got a spare?)? (you have to get the small pulley off the crank first' date=' not easy you will need a puller and or heat)[/b']

3. How do you make sure it is lined up with the new one? ( put it on and if it is not on far enough you will have to fettle the tapered hole until it goes on enough to line up)

4. HELP (NO :-)
