The solenoid (#13) pushes out on the plunger (#11) which pushes against the shifter lever (#25) which then pushes the drive gear (#23) into contact with the gear on the end of the starter itself (#30). So either #23 is worn or the starter gear is worn. I'm afraid that it is the drive gear and that means going in the cases and I don't remember if this gear is hidden behind the clutch basket or not. If it is, that's going to be a pain in the assssss.
Spent three days trying to appease Rat Bastard with long hours and it only looks like more money and time still awaits. I'm more mellowed out now or just plain tired. I wish those damn motorcycle gremlins would go hassle somebody else for awhile.
Recon this gives me more Ironhead repair blogging material for y'all. So be prepared for more cursing in the near future.
(Every solution causes another problem) that's my phrase and you can quote me on that. lol. T-shirts and stickers if you want them.
