Default New Savage X 4.6 Question

I have only ran the truck 3 times, did all the steps of proper break in. my problem is the roto start just spinning and not turning over the engine. now before everyone jumps on me about searching the forums and cleaning the one way bearing.....i already did that. my question is, when i turn the shaft (by hand) without the one way bearing on there it just makes a click sound at every rotation and never catches or moves the piston. Is this right? does it need the speed of the rotostart to catch, or is it supposed to be moving the piston right away? Thanks for the help in advance!!!!

It should clik one direction and catch the other. I make sure to run the engine dry at idle so no fuel and oil is left in the engine. My last oneway is about a year old.

i fixed it, well atleast for now, i took the plate off and found that it was spinning past the notch, the pin was basically flush with the rod, so i pulled the pin and spring out and the spring was all the way compressed, i stretched it out a little and now it holds the pin out. i wander why this happened when it is so new? im sure i'll be replacing the spring and pin before i know it.

thanks for all your help
