Ok.. I think I have it figured out, but don't know how I'm going to fix it until I get to the hobby shop of call OFNA tomorrow. I took off the plate on the back of the motor itself. There's a tiny pin that is supposed to sit in the hole at the bottom of the crank shaft. The inside of that starter plate is grooved out, like a one way slide to catch the pin and turn the piston. The pin is entirely too short and will not catch. WTF.
