Starter secondary engagment
« on: November 02, 2021, 07:43:57 PM »
Recent development:

Starter does not engage immediately, then after holding the position for a few seconds a few times, it engages.

After it engages and as the motor starts to run, it acts like it re-engages, causing the sound of gears clashing as though one is trying to start a running engine.

Only for a second, but is unnerving!

Is the starter switch wearing out?

Maybe my muffler bearing is shot?  :o
