Hi Everyone, I have a 2000 magnum 325 4x4. The starter is giving me issues, i can hear it spinning but not engaging. Is there a common problem or fix for this? I have yet to take it apart and have a look but im kinda getting tired of pulling it over, especially since i broke the pull cord today. Thanks

take the pull start cover off and check that the teeth all line up against each other and that the bendix is coming out to flywheel teeth. most common problem is that the bendix is not extending out to grab the flywheel teeth. pull the bendix out and make sure not to lose the washer that is behind it. inspect and twist to make sure that the bendix turns out like it's going to engage. if it doesn't lubricate it till it does. if it's too worn out get a new bendix. if it's good after lube it up put some grease on the tip ends to make sure it will turn freely. install back washer and install in hole and put cover back on. do not get grease or lube on teeth.
