Default Is one-way bearing gone?

Everytime I turn over the rotostart the engine doesn't actually make the sound of fuel going through it. I just hear the starter spin. Does this mean the one-way bearing is gone? Or is it something else?

You cant and no one else could know untill you pull it out and check it. Chances are it just needs to be cleaned and re-installed.

Do I have to remove the engine to pull it out or can I just pull out the backplate?

Cant tell you, I don't know what you have.....99% of the time you have to pull the engine out, you want to pull the engine out just to make sure you put everything back on right.

Important: Use WD-40 to 'soak' you OWB, it'll last much much longer with some WD-40 in it than many said run it 'clean and dry'.

Don't worry, it'll not 'slip', in fact it'll 'grab' better.

I found soaking it in nitro fuel then a few drips of synthetic 1.1 car oil works the best. I have done them many different ways too.
