I need help !!!!!!!!
Every time I try to start the 1556 the starter gear ,spring ,, retainer , and clip shoot right off the end of the starter shaft... I have made sure the clip is on there nice and tight and all seems normal..
I even tried to bench test it a couple of times thinking that the ring gear on the motor had something to do with it..
When bench testing,,,The parts catapalted across the garage..This appears to be a new looking starter .
What would make the starter over extend off the shaft ???
I took it to a service guy and he said all looks fine including the clip. It just travels out to far and blows everything out the end .. I think I'm about to order a new starter,,BUT hate to shell out for one cause it works fine except for the overtravel ..
It seems there is some in and out play on the shaft it's self.. Could there be a clip or retainer on the inside of the motor it's self . ??? Ant help would be app. sodi
