.21 Starter Slipping. Help!!
Its on an AE MGT, but I figure this can happen to any similar engine, so I put it here. Hope thats ok.
The Pull Start was messed up when I got it, but it has a Drill Start Adaptor. Buuuuuut, after just a few minutes of playing around in a parking lot, it slid around and stalled. We just picked it up and started running some electrics. Maybe 15 minutes later, went to start the MGT, I put the drill in and it seemed to turn over once or twice before it seemed to just "slip".
If I turn it SLOW (too slow to start it), it will turn and you can hear/feel the "bump-bump" of compression, until I speed up. Can the "one way clutch set - part # 25329" get too dirty to work properly? Seems like I read somewhere that they will slip if they get too dirty. If you know anything about this, how do/would you clean it?
