If your engine is out of warranty you can dismantle enough of the front of the engine to gain access to the screws at the back which hold the legs of the starter unit to the bell shaped housing. You will have to break the lead seal to do this. Bennie will then know what you have been at if he ever sees the engine !! :-). Paul.

Hi,

Why must the clutch be removed ? We glue the bendix to the shaft so it will only be removed with force.

Hi Uwe,

Sorry for the late reply.

Remove of bendix using next steps.

1. Place a M3x60, not shorter !!!, screw in the front of the bendix. There is a threaded hole made.
2. Remove cover cap from electric starter
3. Place starter into a lathe (turning) and lock itgentle.
4. Heat up the M3 thread just in front of the bendix for approx. 30sec. It must reach approx. 500-700C (red/orange)
5. Pick up the heated thread with the drill head
6. Pull gently the bendix from the shaft. The glue is made soft by the heat. If it will not come off the shaft re-heated for another 30 sec.

If you have questions please mail use at email@amtjets.com
