So I need to replace the gear that the starter motor directly spins inside the case it connects to. According to the book it's the Idle Gear. Anyone ever done this before, or know if it's going to take a complete tear down to get to? I have a bad feeling it's going to. :???:


EDIT: Oh man! Looks like an in depth search on the old forum answered my question... :grenade:

How did this end up turning out? I know you split the cases. Did everything go back together alright and could you post the parts which required replacement. Unfortunately, this is a somewhat common problem.
