    Default starter sounds like a big wind up toy??

    Went to crank my 35 and instead of the normal starting sound then ignition it sounded like something winding up then down really loud. Is my starter shot?

    Thanks.

    maybe your bendix is bad. Try removing the starter for a bench test. When jumped the starter gear should shoot out as it turns

    Likely bad bendix as mentioned.

    Could be missing teeth on the flywheel but thats remote.

    Try wacking it with a hammer while starting, see if it engages.

    And/or remove and bench test.

    Bendix. Pull the starter and bench test. Bendix should move quickly toward the starter when 6V or 12V is applied to the starter solenoid.

    Usually a good rap will free it up.

    I bet the bendix isnt coming out all the way. You'll see it on your bench test.
